Installing VMware Player on debian/ubuntu.

VMware is a free piece of software that allows Virtualization of a guest operating system inside of an operating system. This can be useful when developing or trying out new distros.

To install VMware player we first need to download it.

You then need to make it executable by running:
sudo chmod +x VMware-Player-7.1.2-2780323.x86_64.bundle

Now run the executable:
sudo ./VMware-Player-7.1.2-2780323.x86_64.bundle

Now follow the installer steps then you will be good to go.

If you get a error about gcc then you need to install dependencies:

apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
