Fix for broken vmware console after upgrade to Ubuntu 6.10

If you upgraded to Ubuntu 6.10 and you suddenly find that you can't run vmware-console anymore, here's a solution from the ubuntuforums that you can try.


Create a shell script in your home directory using your trusty editor, name it vmware-console-fix.


vi vmware-console-fix



Edit the script and put this in


LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/libdbus-1.so.3:$LD_PRELOAD vmware-server-console


Make it executable.


chmod -x vmware-console-fix


Now when you need to run vmware-console just execute vmware-console-fix


./vmware-console-fix
