in a peppermint 8 vmware vm open-vm-tools and open-vm-tools-desktop do not work so when installing peppermint 8 into a vmware vm do not use open-vm-tools (the screen never resizes)

use VMware Workstation Player | Manage | Install VMware tools instead
and when you run vmware-config-tools.pl say NO to all the questions
ESPECIALLY
Would you like to enable VMware automatic kernel modules? NO
