Ubuntu: Install VMWare WorkStation

Easy. Run these three commands:

wget -O ~/vmware.bin https://www.vmware.com/go/getWorkstation-linux
sudo apt install build-essential
sudo bash ~/vmware.bin

Output:

[AppLoader] Use shipped Linux kernel AIO access library.
An up-to-date "libaio" or "libaio1" package from your system is preferred.

(vmware-installer.py:10054): IBUS-WARNING **: 15:04:53.937: The owner of /home/kim/.config/ibus/bus is not root!

Follow the WMWare Workstation Installer Wizard to install it

After VMWare Workstation has been installed, it will become available from a search result

First run of this application will be met with a module updater window

This updating process requires a sudo password  

The end. Cool story ha.

Wait-a-minute, what’s this?…

That’s it. I’m not going to spend time going down this rabbit trail at this time. The original intention of adding this to my Linux box is to install Windoze.

Who would have thought that playing Roblox on Linux is this big of a challenge even to an IT guy?
