Summary0004163: open-vm-tools no longer works after update to 2:10.1.10-1
DescriptionJust performed an update and vm-ware-tools-desktop went to version 2:10.1.10-1 and no longer works for VMware Workstation version 12.5.7 build-5813297, most recent version. I cannot fit guest or go full-screen anymore. Copy and paste from/to the host no longer works either. During the install of the update, errors were thrown. See below. Uninstall throws the same errors. Have not been able to roll back the package either. This is impacting all of my Kali VM's that were updated.
Steps To Reproduceapt-get update -y && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
Additional InformationSetting up open-vm-tools-desktop (2:10.1.10-1) ...

@sn0wfa11 at least part of this bug is discussed here
The screen resolution can be band-aided by telling GNOME to use Xorg instead of the default Wayland: when you log in, after selecting the user (and before inputting the password) you should find a "cog" button near the "Sign in" button; when you click it, a menu appears - choose "GNOME on Xorg"; continue login procedure. If you want to make it "permanent" you can add/set WaylandEnable=false under [daemon] section of /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf as per @cnn comment in the linked bug above (sorry I don't know how to link to bug id or comment it).

I will mention this bug in the other one.

I spoke too soon on the cut and paste. After another reboot, it started working along with drag and drop. So this appears to just be a video issue. I can close this one if it is a duplicate. Let me know

@radualexandrupopescu thanks for the info! That at least makes the ones I didn't have snapshots on usable again.
