    Default Default Screen Resolution BT3

    I'm using the BT3 VM image on a latitude D620. I'm having an issue with my screen resolution after launching KDE. The native resolution for the monitor is 1280x800 but KDE always loads at 800x600.

    I've modified the default xorg.conf file to include the correct resolution but no dice after restart. The current driver is capable of displaying at the 1280x800 resolution as I can change it in the KDE GUI. Changes made through the GUI are not saved after a restart.

    Here's my current xorg.conf file:

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
       Identifier   "Monitor0"
       VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
       ModelName    "Monitor Model"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
       Identifier  "Card0"
       Driver      "vmware"
       VendorName  "VMware Inc"
       BoardName   "[VMware SVGA II] PCI Display Adapter"
       BusID       "PCI:0:15:0"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
       Identifier "Screen0"
       Device     "Card0"
       Monitor    "Monitor0"
       SubSection "Display"
          Viewport   0 0
          Depth     1
          Modes   "1280x800"
       EndSubSection
       SubSection "Display"
          Viewport   0 0
          Depth     4
          Modes   "1280x800"
       EndSubSection
       SubSection "Display"
          Viewport   0 0
          Depth     8
          Modes   "1280x800"
       EndSubSection
       SubSection "Display"
          Viewport   0 0
          Depth     15
          Modes   "1280x800"
       EndSubSection
       SubSection "Display"
          Viewport   0 0
          Depth     16
          Modes   "1280x800"
       EndSubSection
       SubSection "Display"
          Viewport   0 0
          Depth     24
          Modes     "1280x800"
       EndSubSection
    EndSection
    My changes are persistent after restart. Any suggestions?

    Just install vmware-tool tar.gz package & it will ask you,while installing,about the resolution you want.
