Graphics settings in MATE

Post by muffybean »

In my Windows 10 VM I am not sure what setup I should have for graphics. Currently it is set up as shown here.

I have and AMD Graphics card and wonder why that is not shown. Also, if I have the correct setting for my display in VM.

I ran lspci to give this result.

You have the right graphics driver in VB. The only change I would make is increase video memory to the max 256MB.
I have and AMD Graphics card and wonder why that is not shown
Because it is a virtual machine.
