vmWare tools on openSuse 12.3

I was having some problems installing vmWare tools in vmWare Player 5 for the new version of openSuse. It seems some header files are located in the wrong place where the installer of vmWare tools is not looking. The original article about the problems says this should fix the problem:

zypper install kernel-desktop-3.7.10-1.1.1.x86_64
zypper install kernel-desktop-devel-3.7.10-1.1.1.x86_64
mkdir -p /lib/modules/3.7.10-1.1-desktop/build/include/linux
cp /usr/src/linux-3.7.10-1.1-obj/x86_64/desktop/include/generated/uapi/linux/version.h /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build/include/linux

and then to run the vmware-install.pl script.
It worked like a charm.
