I've been unable to get shared folders to show up at all. I've peeled through forums and tried installing, and reinstalling VMWare Tools…then seeing maybe those don't work at all?
Whatever I'm doing isn't working. I saw one tutorial suggest toggling Shared Folders (in VMWare), but when I do I always get the message:
Unable to update run-time folder sharing status: There was an error mounting >Shared Folders file system inside the guest operating system
Running Ubuntu 14.04 on VMWare Fusion 6.0.5. I'm super-new to all of this, I know enough to open Terminal and try inputting random things strangers tell me online, but that's about it.
For context: I'm using Ubuntu to transfer DCP (Digital Cinema Package) files onto Linux-formatted drives, so shared folders would really help out a lot.
