    Hello,
    Canonical now has long term support for Ubuntu 20.04.
    Any idea when Parallels will support it?
    Thanks,
    Rajnesh

    Cannot use coherence mode, the menu is greyed out. Reinstall parallels tools doesn't work.

    Oh come on Parallels!

    The most widely used Linux distribution (Ubuntu) has released a new long-term support release (20.04) 2 months ago (April 23rd 2020) and Parallels Desktop still does not support it? This is a shame. At least for Ubuntu and Fedora I expect the Parallels team to test already with the beta releases of those distributions and support them ASAP after their GA release.

    Honestly I am starting to regret switching from VMware Fusion to Parallels. With VMware you just install the "open-vm-tools" package in the distribution of your choice and most of the time it just works. I wish it would be just as easy to do "dnf install parallels-tools" or "apt install parallels-tools".

    I will be watching very closely how Parallels handles Linux guest support in the duration of the year-long period where my subscription for Parallels Desktop Pro is active. Maybe I should have payed more attention to the fact that all those positive Youtube reviews for Parallels only showed a Windows guest.

    I completely agree with you!
    Why parallels don't release their driver in the kernel and let the community help with that?!

    It looks like basically every Linux distribution that uses a kernel >= 5.5 currently doesn't work with Parallels Tools.
    We just got lucky with Ubuntu and Ubuntu Flavours because they use a 5.4.x Kernel version.

    I am running an Ubuntu 20.04 LTS install on Parallels (Version 15.1.4 (47270)) without issue.
