    I use parallels 7.X and ubuntu 11.4 and each time I try to install the parallels tools I am getting error you do not have permission to run this please exit?

    Thanks for the screen shot, it helps a lot.
    Open Terminal and run installation script with sudo:
    $ sudo ./install

    You should run the install script from Terminal as root:

    1) Open a terminal shell (control-alt-T)
    2) cd /media/Parallels\ Tools/
    3) sudo ./install
