Summary0005580: Copy/Paste does not function out of the box with Kali Linux VMware Images
DescriptionWhen downloading a VMware image for Kali Linux directly from Kali.org the copy/paste function of open-vm-tools does not work out of the box. The resolution scaling or "Fit Guest Now" function works.

You are able to restore copy/paste functionality by running "apt install libfuse-dev". Would it be possible to have that package added to the VMware releases to allow copy/paste to work out of the box?
Steps To Reproduce1. Download images
2. File -> Open -> Select "Kali-Linux-2019.2-vmware-amd64.vmx"
3. Load and boot
4. Attempt to copy/paste something from within the image to your host machine or vice versa.
