Also having problems with the installation of VMWare Tools on an Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Client?

This is how I solved it:

* sudo apt-get autoremove open-vm-tools --purge
* sudo shutdown -r now
* sudo apt-get install open-vm-source
* pager /usr/share/doc/open-vm-source/README.Debian
* sudo module-assistant prepare open-vm
* sudo module-assistant auto-install open-vm
* sudo apt-get install --no-install-recommends open-vm-tools open-vm-dkms zerofree
The "--no-install-recommends" is to avoid the installation of X11 related packages.
If you do have a GUI, leave the "--no-install-recommends" out.
* sudo shutdown -r now

Many thanks to hmontoliu and Kazuhiro NISHIYAMA for their suggestions.
