VMware - segfault (core dumped)

So i just installed VMware.
But when ever i put in "vmware" or "vmplayer" it says

Mon 2019-09-23 13:10:36 CEST    773  1000  1000  11 present   /usr/lib/vmware/bin/appLoader

Now via

coredumpctl

I got the following

Mon 2019-09-23 13:10:36 CEST    773  1000  1000  11 present   /usr/lib/vmware/bin/appLoader

Do you need more information?

Re: VMware - segfault (core dumped)

For the coredump to have any potential of being useful, a backtrace https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … _core_dump Though as it's unlikely to be of much use you should detail how exactly you "installed VMware".

Installation:
I installed this AUR Package.
Of course also all the dependency's.
And then i just tried to start it with first "vmware" and then "vmplayer". Both of them crashed with the same error.

So the coredump info is:

Re: VMware - segfault (core dumped)

Please use code tags, not quote tags, for terminal output: https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Co … s_and_code

It's been a few years since I used vmware, but there should be runtime logs in /tmp/vmware-*****, check those for any further information.

So apparently the library directory was not present, right? (According to the last 2 lines);
What directory should i use?

If you need that's the config file:

.encoding = "UTF-8"
installerDefaults.componentDownloadEnabled = "yes"
hostUUID = "117dbad9-da18-11e9-a191-e9b7328497a8"
installerDefaults.autoSoftwareUpdateEnabled.epoch = "7995711557"
installerDefaults.dataCollectionEnabled.epoch = "6312305465"
installerDefaults.dataCollectionEnabled = "no"
installerDefaults.transferVersion = "1"
installerDefaults.autoSoftwareUpdateEnabled = "no"
