Easy install VMware Tools on a Debian Linux host

  • Inject the Vmware Tools CD on your VMware host
  • start a local session (within your VMware host. The network connection will be lost during the installation)
  • Install the needed packets (also refer to my proxy-post here)
apt-get -y install gcc cpp make automake autoconf binutils psmisc unp
apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
  • Make a folder for the CD-ROM Drive
mkdir /mnt
  • Mount the CD-ROM Drive
Mount /dev/scd0 /mnt
  • Extract the VMware package
unp /mnt/VMware*.tar.gz
  • Change to the VMware folder
cd vmware-tools-*
  • start the installer with perl
Perl vmware-install.pl
  • Hit Enter on all question (Default settings)
  • Do not install VMsync if you don’t need it (I think you can skip this)
  • Reboot
shutdown -r now

When logging into Windows 7, getting error “The trust relationship between this workstation and primary domain failed.”

This is the topic from a Microsoft-site here.

I want to make it as easy as possible with pictures here.

Sometimes it helps if you just restart the computer after 15 minutes. But if not, try the following.

This problem occured after I restored a backup at a computer, which is now longer recognized by the Domain Controller (DC). I think this has something to do with the timestamps and other stuff the DC is sending to its clients. If you want to know it exactly, just consult the web and maybe leave a comment so i can edit here in the article.

The easiest procedure for me is to

  • add a local admin (if you do not already have one. Domain Admins can not login in after this procedure!!)
  • remove the computer from the Domain and restart
  • Login with your local admin
  • join the computer again and restart


Here with pictures (It is german, but if you know your windows you can even read it in a foreign language 😉 ):

start compmgmt.msc with admin rights and add a user

Press [Win]+[Pause] or alternativly: Right click on your computer, select properties.

Change settings

On this screen select change

Select Workgroup and type in anything (like asdf 🙂 )

Confirm with OK

Restart the Computer and do the same again. But this time you do not select Workgroup, but instead Domain. Enter your domain. Note that you must have the rights to add a computer to a domain. Not every admin-like user has that.

HP 1220c Driver for Windows 7 x64 Download

You are searching for HP 1220c drivers and can’t find them on the internet?

The Problem is that HP does not offer drivers because what they say: Windows must provide it. And Windows can’t find any driver. Bad luck!

But here i got a Link for you where you can download it.

It is not like all the other drivers, it automatically adds the drivers for your USB port by using PrintBRM by Microsoft.

Just run the CMD file as Administrator
