VMware – 12.1.0 released – Still Broken With Fedora 23.. — 7 Comments

  1. it can also be solved by adding the following line at about line 42 of the vmware start script located under /usr/bin/vmware:
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib/vmware/lib/$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    on 32 bit systems the path /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules should of course be /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules.

    this works for me.

  2. I have deployed VMware Pro 12.1.0 on Fedora 22 x86_64 and the menu headings are now gone.
    – this affects both Full-Screen menus and Windowed menus
    – It seems that

    I do not have the font murrine installed – or I am not able to get it installed to be more correct.

    I do not have this issue with v12.0.1 or any previous deployments.

  3. @Rainer, that isn’t working for me. But this is (without the copying) from the command line –

    LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/vmware/lib/ /usr/bin/vmware

    Or, edit /usr/bin/vmware and put in the following line somewhere near the top close to the existing export statements-

    export LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/vmware/lib/

    • Thank you so much! I’ve tried everything, mainly by replacing the lib, didn’t work. your method did! Fedora 23 x64 with latest updates, vmware workstation 12.1 20th Dec.2015

  4. Are the vmware modules compiling for you folks? I installed an older 4.2 (4.2.3)kernel but the modules aren’t compiling successfully. I don’t read anything about patching the vmware sources here so I’m curious.
