I have installed a Debian 8.5 on VMWare Workstation and it works fine. However I cannot have full screen size for the Debian guest in such a way that it fits with the monitor.

Though I installed open-vm-tools package on my virtual machine (as I heard that it replaces vmware-tools) but it does not work better : the "Fit guest now" option is still not available.

What should I do ?


You need to install open-vm-tools-desktop. The base tools are for server installations, and the desktop requires X, but includes better video support.
