I tried to run the latest (9) Mint Fluxbox in a VMWare virtual machine, and encountered the same problem I had encountered with other fluxbox distributions: the that apparently, the detected screen resolution is wrong, and I don't know what to do about this. Here is what happens:
When the OS starts, it starts in 800x600 mode, and when I change it to the higher resolution of my screen, 1280x1024, the result is that fonts in applications are HUGE, way beyond being usable, although the font sizes set in the 'appearance' utility seem correct.
Again, I saw this with other fluxbox distributions I had tried long ago, so I am surprised both that this problem still exists, and that I wasn't able to find solutions for it on the web. The only way I know of to manually change display settings is by editing xorg.conf, but in this distribution there is no such file, and I have no idea what to to.
Any idea why this happens in VMWare virtual machines, and how I can solve it? Please note that my technical skills in linux are rather basic.
