Any recommendations with regard to VMware tools for SLED12 SP1 as a
guest? VMware says I should use open-vm, but with Workstation 12.1 I
will not get copy/paste to work. With the tools that come with
Workstation this will work, but then the advanced features of the
desktop integration are not available.

Sounds like you need to decide which features are more (or less)
important to you then go with whichever option provides that.

But I do want to have the cake and eat it as well ;-)
I may have to wait for the next version of the Hypervior. At the moment
I am running the tools that provide me with the clipboard and try to
live without the fancy desktop features.
