Hi, I've read a number of threads about installing the parallels tools under linux (Im new to the OS) but I cant find anything on the following errors. When I click "actions - install tools" the Image loads on the desktop. The first time I tried this I just clicked the "parallels tools.run" icon but a window opens saying "could not open file /media/cdrom0/parallels-tools.run. gedit has not been able to detect the character coding. The character coding box is set to Current Locale (UTF-8) I've tried using the terminal commands others have mentioned in other threads but I cant get them to work. Using the sudo sh parallels-tools.run command I get "sh: can't open parallels-tools.run." I'm not sure if i've mounted the image correctly but it shows on the desktop. Any help or ideas would be great.
