    Wow, I come back a _month_ later and it's still just crickets! Just give us some kind of status report or better yet, some kind of _rough_ E.T.A.
    Or heck, just say "hi" and commiserate with us. Just _something_!
    It looks like other people have independently developed patches for Parallels Tools so it can work with newer kernels so it can't be _that_ hard.

    Thank you for the report provided. I've forwarded it to our development team for deeper investigation. Will let you know as soon as I get any feedback.

    just to remember, this is STILL and issue. its STILL IMPOSSIBLE to use the software. You pay FULL PRICE and it just doesnt work. its not a minor bug, the whole system does not work and since month and months nobody takes care nor gives out any informations....that really suxx.

    maybe somebody should move that to reddit or something.

    Ping. Willing yet to at least _tell_ us what's going on with Parallels Tools?
     
  8. I was following this guide : https://kb.parallels.com/en/123968.
    After my Kali VM was unable to reboot : blocked on "resuming from hibernation".
    Is there anybody on Parallel desktop team able to explain what can i do ?

    I've been having the same issue.. I only get the error for the PRINTER.DRIVERS.POSTSCRIPT.HP driver error. I'm using an older version of Parallels (11.2.3) with Kali 2019.2

    Soooo...Yea..We need help... Can you please give your costumers some actual support? Or can you not figure this bull shit out either? I would rather not have to run through VMware or VirtualBox.. Its kind of ridiculous that your Parallels Tools for Linux..doesn't work for Linux, and that theres no official support for this because from looking at the comments on this thread..theres A LOT of people trying to figure out this exact same exact issue..or workaround it.

    As someone pointed out in another thread, Parallels was purchased last December by Corel... and Corel was recently acquired by "global investment equity firm KKR" ... and it appears as part of this transition (while they figure out what they actually want to _do_ with Parallels) support is... on life support. I'm feeling pretty pessimistically that Parallels is dead.

    We should all be figuring out which alternative (VMware vs. VirtualBox) is better and migrate.
