    When running Parallels 3 I had all my tools working for Ubuntu 8.04 and Windows XP. Because I heard there would be extended graphics capabilities with 4.0 I upgraded. Big mistake. I'm operating slower with the graphics intensive programs but I can live with that. The one thing I can't live with is that Parallels Tools will not install on my Ubuntu VM. I tried mounting the drive and running sh install as root and nothing. This is horrible. Please help.

    I can't even get past step 4.

    I type in the first two lines then get this:

    joe@joe-macbook:~$ mount
    /dev/sda1 on / type ext3 (rw,relatime,errors=remount-ro)
    proc on /proc type proc (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
    /sys on /sys type sysfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev)
    varrun on /var/run type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=0755)
    varlock on /var/lock type tmpfs (rw,noexec,nosuid,nodev,mode=1777)
    udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw,mode=0755)
    devshm on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
    devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw,gid=5,mode=620)
    lrm on /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/volatile type tmpfs (rw)
    securityfs on /sys/kernel/security type securityfs (rw)
    gvfs-fuse-daemon on /home/joe/.gvfs type fuse.gvfs-fuse-daemon (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=joe)
    /dev/scd0 on /media/cdrom0 type iso9660 (ro,nosuid,nodev,utf8,user=joe)
    joe@joe-macbook:~$ /dev/mapper/Vo1GroupOO-LogVo1OO on /type ext3 (rw)
    bash: syntax error near unexpected token `('
    joe@joe-macbook:~$

    The only command you need to type on step 4 is
    mount

    I can see you have CD mounted
    than
    sudo umount /dev/scd0

    Then connect Parallels Tools image
    and continue
    note
    Yours is /dev/scd0 not /dev/hdb
