Does anyone know if or how I can install a VMware client app on my Elementary OS?

Many thanks,

Depending on what you mean, you can install VMWare Horizon Client which lets you connect to an existing virtual machine that's already remotely hosted.

If you want to set up a new virtual machine to run on your computer, VMWare offers a variety of products for this, including a free one for non-commerial use VMWare Workstation Player.

As far as I know, the vast majority of VMWare's applications are designed to run on Linux natively.

  • Thanks for your reply. I have an existing remote machine I want to connect to, so I need the "client". I know that VMware has a download for this; what I need help with is installing it on Elementary OS. Thanks in advance.
