Unity is not supported in linux guests

I made a question on superuser and also have yet to obtain any type of answers, so though't i'd attempt asking here.

You watching: Unity is not supported in linux guests

I have workterminal 11 installed on my brand-new windows 10 lappeak, and am having actually trouble gaining anything to run in Unity mode. I have actually tried Ubuntu and Debian Jessie & Stretch, via xfce, kde, and also gnome-flashearlier and also all of them result in:

The virtual machine cannot enter Unity mode. Check that Unity is sustained for this guest operating mechanism and that the latest variation of VMware Tools is mounted.

I have both open-vm-tools and also open-vm-tools-desktop mounted on the guests.

I tried googling, however all I might uncover was unity not functioning with windows 10 as a guest, which provides me think I am most likely lacking somepoint.

--Edit

For those intereseted, my solution is below (or inspect the question on superuser)

Not a solution yet a comment, Unity is always really fickle. I've had actually incredibly mixed outcomes with it also through all makers in question being Windows 7. I simply type of gave up on it and use ssh and also xming to serve a similar function for Linux VMs.

VMware tools does not assistance Unity well. I think it has issues through Ubuntu unity and also any kind of OS making use of Compiz window manager. Also see the workterminal 11 release notes:
