BackTrack 4 R1/R2 Vmware tools install tutorial

Post by CureMyMind on Sun Jan 16, 2011 8:11 am

HOST computer & Guest computer, This works in r1 and r2 version. Now remember I am using Backtack in this tutorial

NOTE: use sudo if not in root:::::::::
install vm by Vm tab at the top and installing vm

1. before install back up the xorg.conf by command

THIS STEP IS JUST IN CASE
Code:
root@bt~# cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup

Then copy VMwareTools-{version}.tar.gz

From the /media/cdrom to any where you will install them

I will be copying them to

/root/My Documents/Programs

2. Open terminal in that directory and extract by command

Code:
root@bt~# tar zxpf VMwareTools-{version}.tar.gz
3. cd into vmware-tools-distrib directory and install by command

Code:
root@bt~# ./vmware-install.pl

4. Hit ENTER on all questions it should be at defualt expt at xorg.

5. Let it change your xorg file or xserver what ever Neutral

6. Select your desired resolution number that it will load if
800x600 ------ fix-splash800 for lower anything higher use fix-splash
Stepd 6 might not show up in R2 version.


7. now configure your xorg.conf file by command

Code:
root@bt~# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
NOTE: In BT 4R2 you wont be able to do this right away. You will have to reboot and type it in before the you startx. That way you don't get an id error and you are able to then startx.

8. Just hit no for framebuffer, then ok to everything else.

9. Now reinstall splash if u like by command:

800x600 or lower resolution
Code:
root@bt~# fix-splash800

OR

IF higher then 800x600 use the bottom code
Code:
root@bt~# fix-splash

10. Reboot Smile and enjoy your vmware-tools


You can reconfigure the vmware tools by this command.
Code:
root@bt~# dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

And you can uninstall them by this coammnd.
Code:
root@bt~# vmware-uninstall-tools.pl



Hope you enjoy this simple tutorial and the video
