How to Install Parallels Tools on Manjaro

Steps required to install Paralells Tools on Manjaro Linux

Steps

  1. Install Manjaro Linux on a VM (it's recommended to take a snapshot before installing Parallels Tools)

  2. Update the OS

     pacman -Syu
    
  3. Install the latest LTS kernel and kernel headers (See this)

    Note: To install the headers, run uname -r and look at the first two numbers to figure out the package name. For example if the output of uname -r is 4.19.32-1-MANJARO the kernel headers package name for your kernel would be linux419-headers.

  4. Install base-devel package group and DKMS

     pacman -S base-devel dkms
    
  5. Connect the Parallels Tools image and run the installer script

     mkdir /mnt/cdrom
     mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
     /mnt/cdrom/install
