Went to the  Wiki- got to this point

 Required modification of VMware-Player executable file

For Pardus it is necessary to modify the VMware-Player executable file in order to get a working VMware-Player and network connection for the Guest_OS after a restart of Pardus (Host_OS)

       1. Open VMware-Player executable file in Kwrite as root with

          /usr/kde/4/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu kwrite /usr/bin/vmplayer

          or Alt+F2 and

          kdesu kwrite /usr/bin/vmplayer

       2. Add at line 11 (just before "set -e")

          /usr/kde/4/lib/kde4/libexec/kdesu /etc/init.d/vmware start (for Pardus 2009)

          kdesu /etc/init.d/vmware start (for Pardus 2008)

       3. Save and close Kwrite.

Did this  followed by

 Creating the New Virtual Machine

Start System > VMware Player and use the "Create a New Virtual Machine" option.



did this and got  

                           Command '/etc/init.d/vmware 'start'' not found.

Please help (in simple terms , I'm a newbie)

Command '/etc/init.d/vmware 'start'' not found.
Did you get this error during starting "VMware Player" or later after "Create a New Virtual Machine
And is there a file 'vmware' in /etc/init.d?

.........d there is no file vmware' in /etc/init.d
^^ this is the root of the problem.
I will try to replay this problem on my testPC.
Maybe you can re-try 'sudo sh VMware-Player-2.5.2-156735.i386.bundle" as this script should also generate /etc/init.d/vmware.

Went through the whole installer sequence again including sh VMware-Player-3.1.0-261024.i386.bundle
When I ran again I still got Command '/etc/init.d/vmware 'start'' not found.

Is it possible I've downloaded the wrong program as you had sh VMware-Player-2.5.2-156735.i386.bundle

No, I didn't have VMware-Player-2.5.2.

^^ this is the root of the problem.
I will try to replay this problem on my testPC.
During this test on my testPC after a new installation of P2009.2 I found a wrong version of VMware-Player-***.bundle in the command "sudo sh VMware-Player-***"
And this will result in an error  "File or directory not found".
And as a result VMware-Player can not be started and there is no menu entry.
I am sorry for the error and did a repair.
In the attachment konsole-output.txt you can seen that after a successful installation there is a file vmware in /etc/init.d

I do not know as this file is produced by the script in VMware-Player-3.1.0-261024.i386.bundle. Sad
(I did install VMware-Player successfully on three different computers.)

I managed to get it running - more by luck than judgment  Wink
I went into Root and deleted any file that refered to VMware then reinstalled as per the wiki.
