How To Install VMWare Workstation 12

How to install VMware Workstation: [From Terminal]

Go to main install directory and type/enter using the installation file: [Example of file mentioned here]

After you enter your license key, and start VMware WS 12, you may run into an error saying you need to compile G++ to start.

Please use the following commands in terminal to finish installing WS12:[https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gcc-5/5.2.1-22ubuntu2]

sudo apt-get install g++ [This will install the correct G++ compiler for you]
sudo apt-get install build-essential [This is the last thing you will need after the g++ compiler] *Use an S at the end of this command if that doesn’t work*

Once you have completed these steps you will now be able to run VMware Workstation 12!
