VMWare Tools Installation on Ubuntu Server 12.04

To prevent VMware Tools from not being able to find your kernel-header files, run the following commands:
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
$ sudo shutdown -r now
$ sudo lsblk -f
$ ls /mnt
$ sudo mkdir -pv /mnt/cdrom
$ sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom
$ cd /mnt/cdrom
$ ls
$ mkdir ~/build
$ cp -v * ~/build && cd ~/build
$ tar -zxvf *.gz
$ cd vmware-tools-distrib
$ sudo ./vmware-install.pl
$ sudo shutdown -r now
