How to install VMware Tools on Debian 9



Step 1: Install Apache2 Web Server

su
uname -r
apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-UNAME RESULT 

for me
apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-4.9.0-8-amd64

mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
cd /media/cdrom
cp VMwareTools-your version /tmp
cd /tmp
tar zxvf VMwareTools-your version
cd vmware-tools-distrib/
./vmware-install.pl


if you will have error "What is the location of the ifconfig" ...
Install net-tools

su
apt-get install net-tools
Then re-run vmware-install.pl
