LOL hell that might have worked. As it is, Ubuntu didn't give me the same errors.

Now if you can get my copy-paste working...

Is it copying and pasting into and out of the VM that you're having an issue with? I'm not that familiar with vmware, but there will have to be something like Virtual Box's Guest Additions to make that work. Google tells me that the something is called VMware Tools.

Yeah that's a program that effectively never works. "have you updated VMTools?" "of course I've updated goddamn VMTools." "On the host and the guest?" "Yes of course on the host and the guest." "and you've tried uninstalling and reinstalling?" "Yes I have followed the only three available steps anywhere on the Internet and no it has not fixed the problem."
