I am unable to paste the api key into the code while trying out project 6:Checking device status and restarting the device…I have tried out all options including using shift+ctrl+V and changing the settings of clipboard to bidirectional…i have been trying this since 4-5 days…please need urgent help to solve my query. Thankyou!
I also faced this problem. I can’t offer you a direct solution.
However, this is a workaround that i have used:
- Create a shared folder between the host and guest operating systems and enable its access.
- Next in ubuntu, enter this command
sudo vmware-hgfsclientto get the list of shared folders.
- If you have enables shared folder access to the guest os, it should show up.
- Next, try to
cdinto the folder. It maybe mounted as either
/mnt/hgfs/shared_folder_nameor simply as
- Type out/copy the code into a file in the host os and paste the file in the shared folder you created in step 1.
sudo cp /path/shared_folder_name/file_name destination_name_or_pathto copy the file into your guest os.
