    Today I am trying to install ubuntu 11.04 in the lastest version of VMWare Fusion. I have installed it, but whenever I boot I get this screen:
    The tools don't install, I even let it sit for an hour. Is there anyway to bypass this installation of VMWare Tools? I tried to Cancel Installation of Tools in the menubar but that didn't work. I really want to try out Ubuntu 11.04.
    Please Help,

    It worked for me, tools got installed after a few minutes.

    However, if it doesn't for you, just don't choose "easy install" when creating a virtual machine -- install Ubuntu manually, and you won't get vmware tools installation automatically.
