I am running VMWare Fusion 11.5 Pro on Mac OS X 10.15 Catalina

Copy & Paste is not working in my Kali Linux and my host (Mac OS X)

I checked the settings I see this

I search around, people suggest to install VMWare Tools.

I went to the menu the option is not lid up .

I am hitting the dead end.

What else should I check ?

It takes me 2 weeks to stuck in this annoying stage.

If someone else, also face this issue run these in your Kali

apt-get update
apt install -y --reinstall open-vm-tools-desktop fuse

These 3 commands work for me.
