Install VMWare on Ubuntu

Likely I'll forget this- so I'll write it down by way as a reminder. Perhaps someone else finds it useful...

1) Install some prerequisits

apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)

2) Download the VMWare bundle

Vversion 5 at the time of writing) - download here

3) Install & run the installer app

chmod +x ~/downloads/VMware-Player-*.bundle

sudo ./VMware-Player-*.bundle

vmware-modconfig --console --install-all
