Installing VMware tools on Kali

You need the kernel headers!

echo cups enabled >> /usr/sbin/update-rc.d
echo vmware-tools enabled >> /usr/sbin/update-rc.d
apt-get install gcc make linux-headers-$(uname -r)
ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/include/linux/

cp VMwareTools-*.tar.gz /tmp/
tar zxpf VMwareTools-*.tar.gz
sudo ./vmware-install.pl -d
