Install VMWare tools on Centos 7 / 8 and AlmaLinux
VMWare tools are distributed through repositories. Install them with
yum install open-vm-tools
Remember to start and enable it, so it starts automatically after reboot.
systemctl enable vmtoolsd systemctl start vmtoolsd
For some distributives they might appear in EPEL repositories, so here is small tip:
yum -y install epel-release
