  1. You need to register on VMWare website to get the installer bundle;
  2. If the version changed, just change the `source=("xxxxx" "bootstrap" "config") line to match the file you have downloaded;
  3. Read the comments if you have a problem;
  4. If not resolved, add a comment :)

For those that may still be having issues getting this to work.

I downloaded the bundle from vmware to ~/Downloads

Edited PKGBUILD source file location. source=("file:///home/jcarter/Downloads/VMware-Remote-Console-10.0.6-14247266.x86_64.bundle" "bootstrap" "config")

Compilation was successful with a module failing to load. Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module" Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "canberra-gtk-module"

The VMRC works well so it doesn't seem those modules are missed.

Note that you have to download the file yourself.

Pushed a new version, please test and report back any issues :)

Thanks @germafab for the local:// suggestion.

@vargask No that is not correct as systemd does NOT use the old init.d format. If you have problem please post the relevant logs.

@ptrj Sorry for the delay, I'll update shortly. Thanks! :)

Hi All,

I had the same issue here described and modify the source line in PKGBUILD did not fix.

Then I tried with the .bundle file. chmod +x *.bundle. As root ran ./VMware-Remote-Console-11.2.0-16492666.x86_64.bundle after accepting the EULA, the installer asks for a system service scripts directory. I changed it to "/etc/systemd/system". I am a new Arch user and I noticed that at least in the latest version of Arch "/etc/init.d" doesn't exist. System service scripts directory (commonly /etc/init.d).: /etc/systemd/system

The installer completed successfully and I could launch a remote console just fine.

Just copy the downloaded .bundle file to /home/user/.cache/yay/vmware-vmrc/ and launch install again, no code change needed.

germafab commented on 2020-05-03 20:47

It might be a good idea to change file:// to local:// (see:

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index d6dbb62..e21fa88 100644
@@ -12,7 +12,7 @@ license=('custom:vmware')


(EDIT: added section) this would make it clear that it is expected to be run locally. Or you could change it like this

diff --git a/PKGBUILD b/PKGBUILD
index d6dbb62..2aeb1bd 100644
@@ -12,7 +12,7 @@ license=('custom:vmware')


and add a step in the comments to say to download the file there (otherwise it is unnecessary complicated).

fanjiang commented on 2020-05-03 16:44

@ptrj Thanks! Bumped the version.

@paradinglunatic I think if that is an issue we can try moving these files to a shared "meta" package, but I am not sure if it is the best solution. Anyway just renaming them should also do the job, and I think there will be no issues :)

johnnybash commented on 2020-02-29 11:27

because with an AUR package the files are tracked by pacman which is a clean way to use this program without messing up your system. furthermore it's not possible to automate the download since the installer isn't public.
