Source: open-vm-tools Version: 2:10.2.0-2 Severity: normal Dear Maintainer,
The tools.conf template shipped with the Debian package (debian/local/tools.conf) is incorrect. It's current contents: bindir = "/usr/bin" do not mean anything to open-vm-tools - it's not interpreted in any way by vmtoolsd. Moreover, on the first launch this content is cleared by a piece of code doing a "config upgrade". I believe replacing it with a more meaningful content is necessary.
