Problem with Oversized Windows / Applications after Autofit
Study this image. The small versions of terminal and konqueror were started before I "Autofit guest" in VMWare. But once I Autofit my VMWare so it stretches out on my entire monitor - newly opened programs are way
too large. Anyone have any ideas of what is causing this or what could fix the problem?
edit: Could a mod move this to bug section, I confirmed this issue on different hardware, VMWare Workstation 6.5.2.
Short steps to experience this bug:
Open terminal inside VM
Maximize VMWare window
VMWare toolbar -> View -> Fit Guest Now
Open new terminal in VM / any application and compare the huge size difference
I have been using a bt4 on vmware server and I have not experienced this problem. Are you sure it is not with workstation? Seems as if it were a bt problem then it would affect other vm products ?
Hey Amael - well no I'm not sure at all. You could certainly be right.
Am I the only person experiencing this? It is definitely very annoying and I
would love a solution :b.
Well I guess we start with the easy first?

Yep unfortunately to no avail. Also tried upgrading to the latest VMWare tools + 45 minutes of googlefu. Still no luck.

Failing that you may need to post up your xorg.conf from vmware
