|0005580||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2019-07-06 20:45||2019-07-06 20:45|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0005580: Copy/Paste does not function out of the box with Kali Linux VMware Images|
|Description||When 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 Reproduce||1. 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.
