Does this work:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo mkdir /mnt/hgfs
$ sudo vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs
$ stat -c '%a %n' /mnt/hgfs

This worked fine: sudo mkdir /mnt/hgfs

This failed: sudo vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs with:

Error -107 cannot open connection!

You could try:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/open-vm-tools start
$ sudo vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs
$ stat -c '%a %n' /mnt/hgfs

$ stat -c '%a %n' /mnt/hgfs

After running sudo /usr/local/etc/init.d/open-vm-tools start VMware sees that VM as having VMware Tools installed now. Rebooting stops this and I have to run this command again so can this be automated?

Running sudo vmhgfs-fuse /mnt/hgfs fails with "Error -107 cannot open connection"

You can add the command "/usr/local/etc/init.d/open-vm-tools start" to /opt/bootlocal.sh and make a backup.

I suggest you google "Error -107 cannot open connection" to see if you find something that might help.

Note also that as per the open-vm-tools-desktop info file:
Quote
Add to ~/.xsession after mouse-config to enable copy/paste, mouse grab/ungrab, and desktop resizing:
[ $(which vmware-checkvm) ] && [ vmware-checkvm ] && vmware-user &
Move wbar to upper left vertical because wbar doesn't know when the desktop is resized.

I just wanted to say a very big thank you for all your help! I have my TC9 VM working great with VMware Tools and it now works even after rebooting the machine.

So once again, thank you for taking the time to patiently help me through my issues  :)
