Genius open-vm-tools

I have always felt that running a Debian VM in a VMware environment was a little bit of a pain, installing the vmware tools was easy enough that you could do it in a few minutes but not so easy that I could remember how to do it (hence this post).

Now VMware fully support open-vm-tools things are much easier if you are running wheezy or newer, you can simply run:

apt-get install open-vm-tools

Then everything just works.

I look forward to the day when the Debian installer detects that it is getting installed on a VMware VM and does this automatically for you at install.
