Running Zorin 12.3 inside Windows 10 on VMPlayer
- Download VMPlayer 64bit Windows 10 or Linux - VMware Player
- Download Zorin OS 12.3 ISO at DistroWatch.com
- Install VMPlayer on Windows 10; then create a new virtual machine with the Zorin 12.1 ISO; you can type Zorin when asked what OS to install. Note: if you cant see the entire screen during install hit tab several times until u see the BACK BUTTON (lower right) lightly highlighted with grey border dots... then hit tab again and enter. This should place you on the NEXT BUTTON that you don't see.
- Once installed, make sure to set your memory setting in vmplayer by RIGHT CLICKING the "New Virtual Machine" you created (I named mine ubuntu) and click SETTINGS and set MEMORY to 4gb with the slider.
- Once logged into Zorin 12.3 virtual machine select FULL SCREEN MODE (Upper left screen icon). Also go to Zorin SETTINGS, DISPLAY to adjust your display resolution. You may need to setup a new wallpaper. Finally make sure your firewall is on in Zorin settings.

Sept 21, 2017, Install VMPlayer on Zorin 12.2 Linux
First, download your 2nd operating system from distrowatch.com. For example: 4Mlinux or ReactOS or Mint.
Second, download VMPlayer for linux here: - VMPlayer Dnld. You will end up with a filename like: VMware-Player-12.5.7-5813279.x86.64.bundle in your downloads folder. Next, execute the following terminal code from the downloads folder:
// Running VMPlayer in Zorin 12.3
chmod 555 filename.bundle
chmod 555 VMware-Player-12.5.7-5813279.x86.64.bundle
Finally, load the new iso from the downloads folder into VMplayer. (The full steps for VMPlayer are the same as the linux tab steps titled "Zorin 12 Install Steps VMPlayer Virtual Machine", just replace Zorin with your iso.) Success! Your ready to explore your new distro!
Update your vm-tools from the Zorin Terminal with (allows coping and pasting files and commands between win and linux): apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop -y

Note on AsciiDoc Instructions Tab
For the CSS to be applied to the document you must remember to add the path to the css file, infront of css file... If this is left out it won't work. It Looks like this: /home/documents/github.css
Asciidoc command would look like: asciidoctor -a stylesheet=/home/documents/github.css -a stylesdir=/home/z/Desktop yourfilenamehere.adoc
// Adds the css to the adoc yielding an html file. Further extra commands can be used in the .adoc file for images and videos:
