I'm trying to install VMware WSX on Fedora 25 and I get following output :

➜ Downloads sudo ./VMware-WSX-1.0.2-928297.x86_64.bundle [sudo] password for bavarian: Extracting VMware Installer...done. No protocol specified No protocol specified

Looks like it is something related to Wayland being used instead of X server but I couldn't find any solution :(

Try again under an XOrg session...

Unfortunately didn't helped. Under Xorg session I don't get errors but the installer quits without throwing any messages.

Use Gnome Boxes or VirtManager
