No wide screen in Linuxmint LMDE in VirtualBox VM Oracle

Post by recognition » Mon Sep 03, 2018 2:11 pm

Hi,
When I run linuxmint lmde in Virtualbox, a message is displayed that the graphics is not maximized, and there is no display of the entire screen, even though the virtual machine is displayed on the full screen. What should be set in the virtual machine settings to have a full view? The processor is duo with 4Gb memory.
The Gusest Addition is already marked in the Virtualbox:
Settings -> User Interface -> Devices -> Insert Gusest Addition CD Image
(Marked with v).
Hard Disks is not marked, but I run linuxmint lmde on live.
Thanks to the responders.

Reason: Moved from "Main Edition" (Ubuntu based) to "LMDE 3", which this thread is about.

Having the guest additions CD image inserted isn't enough - you need to install the actual guest additions from it.
