Specs: Linux mint And Mac
Dear all,

I am going to share a folder from mac to vmware linux mint. I have chosen a shared folder from mac in vmware settings of linux mint. I have installed linux-source... and when mount -t vmhgfs .host:/data /mnt/hgfs/data , it says cannot mount filesystem No such device. How can I do?? I does not see the content in the folder. But when I run the vmware-hgfsclient, it shows the share folder name. How can I do to overcome this to make the shared folder with content in linux mint???

Hey

You're trying to mount vmghfs share which is not exist at your Mac.

I think that you'll need to setup NFS share at Mac and then try to mount it at your Mint virtual machine:

mount -t nfs host:/data /mnt/hgfs/data

You can find more relevant info here.
