# Have already installed open-vm-tools on F30 and rebooted

# see the shared folders available
[jmcd@localhost ~]$ vmware-hgfsclient

# If you don't see the above. Shutdown the VM and configure
# the folder sharing from within VMWare Fusion for your
# host and that guest

# mounting the shared folder in the guest
mkdir ~/host
vmhgfs-fuse host/

# check you have the folder available
[jmcd@localhost ~]$ ls ~/host/
