    I can't install Vmware


    Hi!

    I’m trying to install Vmware but I can’t do it.
    This is the code:

    # sh ./VMware-Player-12.5.0-4352439.x86_64.bundle --console
    Extracting VMware Installer...done.
    User interface initialization failed.  Exiting.  Check the log for details.
    
    
    

    Then I go to see the error log and this is that contains

    VirtualBox works fine for me but I need to install vmware because we are using it in school.
    I’m newbie using Linux and I don’t know how fix-it. I try to find solution in google and in the official arch web but i can’t solve it.

    Thank you for your time!

    With Vmware always problems with installation, on Arch. I can offer such variant, must help, but I will not be able to check for itself.
    Installation:
    mkdir -p /etc/rc.d/vmware.d/{rc{0,1,2,3,4,5,6},init}.d
    sudo ./VMware-workstation-full-12.1.1-3770994.x86_64.bundle --custom --console -I --eulas-agreed
    Still necessary to make the reference ln -s /etc/init.d/vmware /etc/rc.d/vmware.d/init.d/vmware 4.8.4-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT
