I'm trying to setup Elementary OS as a VM on my Windows machine, and I wanted to use VMWares Unity mode. However, every time I try to load it up, it says

The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode because:

- Unity is not supported in Linux guests.

Yet I've seen others make this work with other Linux distros like Xubuntu. Does VMWare not support ElementaryOS?

I tried also installing the VMware tools as well but no luck...

  • FYI elementaryOS does not come with Unity, also Ubuntu just dropped Unity for Gnome – Sebastian Nov 16 '18 at 17:54
  • Ah not the desktop environment unity I was talking about here. Was talking about the mode on VMWare called Unity. – Carson Nov 16 '18 at 19:01
  • You are right, my bad – Sebastian Nov 16 '18 at 20:04

VMware drop support for Unity with later Workstations, use VMware Player 7 and it works. https://communities.vmware.com/thread/518568
