When will VMware publish a version of VMware tools for Ubuntu 10.10?
The small screen is killing me.
You can install the open version of the VMware tools through apt-get. From a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.10, just do this:
apt-get install --no-install-recommends open-vm-dkms apt-get install open-vm-tools
That should get your screen resizing, clipboard, file drag-and-drop, etc. running.
I installed VMware tools "manually" as described here. The guide is for 10.04 but it will also work in 10.10:
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade sudo mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom cp /media/cdrom/VMware*.tar.gz /tmp sudo umount /media/cdrom cd /tmp tar xzvf VMware*.gz cd vmware-tools-distrib/ sudo ./vmware-install.pl
