# Mounting Shared Directories on Ubuntu Running on VMWare

Tags:

This post is mostly for myself 🙂 In some cases, couldn’t find out why, but shared directories fail to mount in VMWare on Linux. In these cases, this is the way to mount manually:

vmhgfs-fuse /mount/dir

No idea why, but it was pretty difficult to find out this online. Many other techniques were mentioned, but none worked.

Bye! 😉
