http://askubuntu.com – Good evening everybody. Been working at this problem for 2 days now. I cannot for the life of me enable 3D support in Vmware 9 guests. Hardware: Dell Latitude E5520 laptop. Processor: Intel i7-2620M CPU @ 2.70GHz × 4. Memory: 8GB. Video: Intel Sandybridge Mobile x86/MMX/SSE2 OS: Ubuntu 12.04.1 LTS, 32 bit. Vmware Workstation: 9.0.1 build-894247 Glxgears functions fine. Frame rate is ~60fps. Vmware guest: Win7 Starting the Win7 guest in Vmware throws the following errors: 1) No 3D support is available from the host. And 2) Hardware graphics acceleration is not available. I've read through t (HowTos)
