The official Debian 8 documentation for VMWare instructs you to install the
open-vm-tools package, but it omits that you actually also need to install the separate
open-vm-tools-desktop package to get window resizing working. Simply run:
apt-get install open-vm-tools open-vm-tools-desktop
Using Varying Vagrant Vagrants with VMWare Workstation turned out to be quite easy!
What you need:
Just follow the instructions in the VVV Readme! All you need is:
vagrant up --provider=vmware_workstation
That’s it! VVV will happily provision on VMWare, which should take 15-30 minutes.
When finished, you can visit: http://vvv.dev
Follow the instructions in the VVV Readmeuntil you get to the “vagrant up” command. You will need to apply a small change to the Vagrantfile. The changes are found in this pull request, which will hopefully get merged soon.
Changes are now merged into VVV, no need for any additional modifications!
If you have issues with phpMyAdmin, see this pull request for a fix.
