If you ever used dpkg to install a VMware package, then I would purge
that package.  Note that I said "purge", not "remove".  Additionally,
VMware Server is in Canonical's feisty-commercial repository, so there
is nothing special to do other than add the repository to your apt
config and install it.  I have done it possibly hundreds of times on
Ubuntu, and it always worked...
