[SOLVED] Only seeing 1/4 of screen in VM

Post by WolfShade2k19 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 6:45 pm

Hello, all,

Fairly new to Linux, loving it so far. The MATE desktop is amazing.

However, I have an odd problem. When I boot up my Debian Mint MATE VM in VMWare Workstation, I get can see only the top left 1/4 of the screen. I'll add an image, to attachments.

Any idea as to what is going on? This only just recently started happening, and I've had the VM for about a year.

V/r,

Odd. Never heard of this before. Did a quick Google search, again (the first few didn't get me anything), and found the following:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install open-vm-tools-desktop

Rebooted after the above terminal commands, and voila, it is giving me full screen, now.

Hope this helps someone in the future.

V/r,
