I am unable to install Parallels Tools in Linux virtual machine. I am executing all needed commands in Terminal, but the installation does not start.
- Open Ubuntu Linux Terminal window via shortcut Ctrl+Alt(Option)+T.
Get the administrator's / root privileges (depending on your Linux distribution):
Make sure the DVD drive in Linux virtual machine is ejected:
Go to Parallels Desktop menubar > Devices > CD/DVD > Connect image…
prl-tools-lin.isoand click Open
Mount the Parallels Tools image to Linux virtual machine:
mkdir /media/cdrom mount /dev/cdrom /media/cdrom
Make sure the disk image is successfully mounted:
it should list the files located on the disk
install* installer/ install-gui* kmods/ tools/ version
Go to the Parallels Tools disk and run the installation package:
cd /media/cdrom ./install
