VMware Workstation 8.0.2 does not Work with uBuntu 12.04 LTS

Hi there ...

About some day ago, I have updated my system,

I'have created this post to share, the way I have troubleshoot and successfully update the Linux Kernel make VMware Workstation 8.0.2 work and Kubuntu 12.04..


Installing VMware 8.0.2 64bit
Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64bit BETA
My Kernel version is: 3.2.0-20-generic
pst007x@pst007x-Aspire-5741:~$ sudo sh VMware-Workstation-Full-8.0.2- 591240.x86_64.bundle
Installs ok
When I launch I am asked to install modules which are compiled and loaded into the running kernel.
A window opens
VMware Kernel Module Updater
This fails on Virtual Network Device
UPDATE:
When I try to add patch, following error:
 pst007x@pst007x-Aspire-5741:~$ sudo sh patch-modules_3.2.0.sh
 [sudo] password for pst007x: 
 patch-modules_3.2.0.sh: 27: [: workstation8.0.2: unexpected operator
 patch-modules_3.2.0.sh: 28: [: workstation8.0.2: unexpected operator
 Sorry, this script is only for VMWare WorkStation 8.0.2 or VMWare Player 4.0.2. 
 Exiting
 pst007x@pst007x-Aspire-5741:~$
I have fully un-installed, and re-installed. I am installing the correct version. Probably a problem with the patch. VMware installs perfectly on Ubuntu 11.10..
.. Here is how I've worked it out .. 

Move to Home folder

  1. VMware-Workstation-Full-8.0.2-591240.x86_64.bundle
  2. PATCH: patch-modules_3.2.0.sh
  3. PATCH: vmware3.2.0.patch
