Getting vmplayer running on Ubuntu feisty

with 2 comments

The vmware-player gives pixbuf library trouble on the new Ububtu feisty. The problem lies in the gdk-pixbuf.loaders file used by vmplayer. A quick hack is to do the following:

cp /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders.32 /usr/lib/vmware-player/libconf/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders

But the next trouble is with the GTK themes- it works fine in GNOME, but in XFCE, it gives trouble. Looks like some conflict between gtk-2.4 and gtk-2.10 in feisty.
