Virtual Machine for simulator?

Has anyone successfully setup the simulator within a parallels virtual machine? I attempted this with ubuntu 18.04 LTS and I’m getting odd errors when trying to run the donkeysimlinux.

Answering my own question. Running unity in a vm is not supported and not going to go well. I gave up in favor of running the sim natively on another platform.
