    Hi, after reinstalling Ubuntu 16.04 virtual machine and reinstalling Parallels Tools, I am still unable to copy and paste between Mac OS and Ubuntu. I tried command+c and command-v as well as control+c and control+v. Could you please let me know how to fix this?

    I run macOS 12.4 Monterey and installed Parallels 17.1.2 cannot copy and paste between MacOS and Kali machine, using Command-C and Control-V or vice versa? Is there a setting missing somewhere?

    Hello, What is the version of the kernel build of Kali Linux VM that you are using now?

    @HalukT1 , without Parallels Tools you won't be able to copy and paste since it is the tools that enable that feature.

    Hi again, it seems that ./install fails to the package linux-headers-5.15.0-kali3-amd64. In fact the dkms package already contains a newer version as linux-headers-5.16.0-kali7-amd64
