How to mount a VMware shared folder in URSim
/ Most recent by Daniel
Hi, is there an easy way to mount a VMware shared folder in URSim, the simulation software for Universal Robots?
I'm talking about the shared folders set up in the settings of the virtual machine in VMware workstation.
It should be possible to accsess the shared folders since the mount command in URSim / lubuntu does support vmhgfs.
I’ve tried this commands without success:
sudo mount -t vmhgfs .host:/ /mnt/hgfs/
sudo mount -t vmhgfs .host:/ /home/ur/shares/
I’m getting the error: “Error: cannot mount filesystem: No such device”.
If I type the command “vmware-hgfsclient” in terminal I get the VMWare shared folders listed up successfully.
I have also tried to mount a windows share, but I got the error message “mount: unknown filesystem type: smbfs”.
