VMWare: Operating system: Install: VMWare tools: FreeBSD: How to 
install VMWare tools on FreeBSD?
---
Steps: Overview:
 1. Power on the virtual machine.
 2. Prepare your virtual machine to install VMware Tools.
 3. Choose File > Install VMware Tools.
 4. The remaining steps take place inside the virtual machine, not on
    the host computer.
 5. Be sure the guest operating system is running in text mode. You
    cannot install VMware Tools while X is running.
 6. As root (su -), mount the VMware Tools virtual CD-ROM image, 
change to a
    working directory (for example, /tmp), uncompress the installer, 
then
    unmount the CD-ROM image.
     Note: You do not use an actual CD-ROM to install VMware Tools, 
nor do
     you need to download the CD-ROM image or burn a physical CD-ROM 
of this
     image file. The VMware Workstation software contains an ISO image 
that
     looks like a CD-ROM to your guest operating system. This image 
contains
     all the files needed to install VMware Tools in your guest 
operating
     system.
 7. Type the following commands:
     mount /cdrom
      You will see e.g.
      # Nov 18 16:14:52 /kernel: cd9660: RockRidge Extension
     cd /tmp
     tar zxf /cdrom/vmware-freebsd-tools.tar.gz
     umount /cdrom
 8. Run the VMware Tools installer.
     cd vmware-tools-distrib
       # if you can not find it, type: find / -name vmware*
       # to do a directory listing, type: ls
     ./vmware-install.pl
       -In which directory do you want to install the binary files?

         [/usr/lib/vmware-tools], press <ENTER> to accept this default
