I have app-emulation/vmware-player-12.5.9.7535481 installed from the vmware overlay. It currently has my windows 7 virtual machine which I really like having around.

The log complains that
Code:

Anyone know how to get this working again?

I read that to say that it is using a bundled gdkmm, then loading a system pangomm to support the bundled gdkmm, then failing to find Glib::Object::Object(Glib::Object&&) as a defined symbol. From the name, that symbol probably comes from glibmm. The bundled glibmm is too old, or is configured incorrectly, to support the system pangomm. You cannot mix the bundled glibmm with the system pangomm, at least in this case. Disable use of the bundled glibmm, or update to a bundled glibmm that provides the required symbol.

Forcing it to use its boundled libs gets past that error and to one with libfontconfig.so.1, so this may be a lost cause. Investigating 12 is really old and 15 is current, so it seems that vmware hasn't been getting any love these days :(

I use the VMplayer from stefantalpalaru's overlay : app-emulation/vmware-workstation-15.0.1.10737736::stefantalpalaru

Maybe try that?
