When trying to drag and drop a file from the Host operating system to the guest, I get the following error message:
Error stating file '/proc/fs/vmblock/mountPoint/cdd623db/filename'
No such file or directory
where filename is the file from the host system.
I am running open-vm-tools version 2011.07.19, with Arch Linux (kernel version 2.6.39), and Xfce 4.8. Using VMWare Player 3.1.4 build-385536. I checked the startup scripts, and vmblock is mounted and running. The /proc/fs/vmblock/mountpoint directory is symlinked to /tmp/VMWareDnD/cdd623db.
Drag and drop from guest to host works fine. Clipboard synchronization works in both directions (though only with text - not with files).
Thank you for any help in this matter.
