VMWare Fusion - Mounting shared directories (macOS host, Linux guest)
March 30, 2020 7:22 AM
With VMWare Fusion, running MX Linux, I ran into the problem that I could not access the shared directories.
This fixed it:
Add the following line to /etc/fstab (requires root access, so use sudo!!)
vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs fuse defaults,allow_other 0 0
Note: do not forget to create the directory /mnt/hgfs
Note: do not forget to install or update the OpenVM tools:
sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop
sudo systemctl enable open-vm-tools
Note: for Clear Linux I had to install the OpenVm tools like so:
sudo swupd bundle-add os-cloudguest-vmware-gui
I found a reboot after that to be a good idea.
