I created a new VM and began installing Ubuntu, and the VM's screen is strangely enormous, requiring much vertical and horizontal scrolling.
I didn't change any of the VM's settings. The display setting is showing Monitors:
- Use host settings for monitors (selected)
- Number of monitors: 1
- Maximum resolution of any one monitor: 2560 x 1600
When I right-click my Windows desktop and select Screen resolution, it says it's 1280 x 800. Apparently VMware Player is getting wrong information about my screen resolution.
- Ubuntu 12.04
- VMware Player 3.1.3
- Windows 7 Professional x64
- MacBook Pro 2009
I also posted this in VMware Communities.
