Virtualbox screen resolution and small size

Postby lmlm on Wed Mar 13, 2013 4:19 am

In a Windows 7 host laptop, I've installed Linux Mint 13 as a Guest VM.

The Guest's screen appears full size (though not the sharpest resolution) on initial startup, but after restarting the VM, the screen size has shrunk to only about 70% of the monitor, and there is only one choice for monitor resolution (800x600, too low).

This problem wasn't helped by installing the Guest Additions also (by clicking on the VM menu, which puts the CD on the desktop, then running the *.run file via Terminal), nor by downloading Mint updates.

Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
