As you may know, the package manager of Arch Linux is “pacman”.

sudo pacman -Syu                #Update and upgrade system packages
sudo pacman -S package_name     #Install a new package
sudo pacman -R package_name     #Remove a package
sudo pacman -Rn package_name    #Remove along with backup-ed config files
sudo pacman -Rsu package_name   #Remove along with dependencies

If you do not have wget on your machine, you can install like so:

sudo pacman -S wget

Then follow the steps below:

tar -xjf vmtools-4-arch-and-co.tar.bz2
sudo bash

Now you may have a vmware-tools installed on your machine. The left thing is to daemonize your vmware-tools.
Let’s make a service file first.

sudo vim /etc/systemd/system/vmwaretools.service
Description=VMWare Tools daemon

ExecStart=/etc/init.d/vmware-tools start
ExecStop=/etc/init.d/vmware-tools stop


Well then, you know, enable and start your awesome service!

sudo systemctl enable --now vmwaretools

Your machine is all set now, you evil archer! :XD
