Fixing VMWare Workstation 12 on an Ubuntu 15.10 host

When I upgraded to Ubuntu 15.10, my VMWare Workstation 12.0 installation stopped working. After a quick search, I found the answer. According to this thread on VMWare’s forum, the answer involves telling Workstation where to find a particular file.

Open up a terminal, then copy and paste the following line:

echo /usr/lib/vmware/lib/ | sudo tee -a /etc/

Then copy and paste this:

sudo ldconfig

After this, the Workstation GUI will start normally. Simple and quick solution!
