So I have installed a Linux guest (Ubuntu 12.04 alternate with expert install), for development. (Easier than keeping around cygwin and stuff.)

But it happens, that some windows come up with huge fonts. Check the image for reference. I have no idea what may cause this behaviour. I have already run "obconf", KDE's "systemsettings", and so on. But nothing. NOTE: This previously already happened under VMWare guests (linux).

enter image description here

Host: Windows 7 x64 SP1
Guest: Ubuntu 12.04 alternate, with expert install (xorg, kde, openbox)
VMWare: Workstation 8.0.2 - vmware-tools installed

Update no.1: Seems like it's only happening after setting the display size with xrandr by hand, after logging in.

Update no.2: Tried writing a Xorg.conf (can be read here), but Ubuntu ignored it right at reboot. (It's located in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

The display size was set to 1920x1080 with xrandr (manually), and I have installed "vmware-tools" from the disc already. – Shiki Apr 24 '12 at 12:54
This may be a bug in Ubuntu(xorg-server): – Shiki Apr 24 '12 at 13:52
