    Help you with what? Can you please explain what the problem is, why you think it's a problem, and what you would like to accomplish?

    Let me Google: "vmware skipping x configuration because x drivers are not included"

    So VMware Tools is skipping the video driver because the Linux distro has a video driver already installed. Where is the problem?

    vmware-config-tools.pl in slackware

    no help, no information, no document, in nowhere!

    After a week of searching in Google, the only answer that I was found:
    forum.p30parsi.com/showthread.php?t=138873

    One of the users of this forum says that it has been reported as an bug and the older versions do not have this problem

    also He has given me this link for more information

    I've not done it myself, but have you thought about setting up a shared folder?
    Viewing a Shared Folder

    Also, there should be an option in your VMware options to accommodate drag'n'drop functionality.

    I can see from Google results that you have posted the same thread in numerous forums, regardless of how appropriate the question is for that forum. You may want to consider how much help you will get by behaving in that manner.

    And, Google more.

    I can confirm that these instructions work fantasic for Window 7 VMware Workstation Host, and Slackware 13.37 Guest.

    1- I've seen this a few days ago and this is about slackware
    12.2, The big issue is the top headline of every post
    Slackware 13.0 Linux Guest + VMware Tools on Slackware 12.2 Linux Host, VMWare Player 3.0
    do you read this ?!
    2- this post is:
    I can confirm that these instructions work fantasic for Window 7 VMware Workstation Host, and Slackware 13.37 Guest.
    in response to previous posts
    To prevent KDE from crashing on startup you may need to follow this guidance from Slackware's CHANGES_AND_HINTS.TXT, which is to be found at the top level of the distribution DVD:

    Regardless of your chipset (though it seems more common with intel), if KDE
    crashes on startup, try disabling the Composite extension (which will also
    disable all of the fancy desktop effects). Place the following content in
    a file at /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/disable-composite.conf:
    Section "Extensions"
    Option "Composite" "Disable"
    EndSection
    3- i can install slackware 12.2 with vmware tools perefctly, my problem is in version 13.37

    I will say the same.
    You have received links to documentation regarding your issue. Have you looked at any of the information provided?
    Yes, the page referred to Slack 12. But the same commands apply in 13.37. I post this from a VirtualBox installation of Slack 13.37 running as a guest inside of Ubuntu 10.04. Posted from a saved and shared text file that I dragged from host to guest. I did that using the instructions posted by HROAdmin26 and myself.

    I think I just answered that.

    You haven't posted any error messages, either. So I'm not sure where the problem is.
