How to install VMware Player?

When I go to run VMware player bundle as executable, it says ‘root access needed’. Please help.

Can you please launch terminal and run

sudo apt install --reinstall policykit-1-gnome

Once that is complete, elevate to root:

sudo -i


If it runs, proceed as needed. Once complete and closed out, test launching VmWare normally.
