    Default VMWare Workstation: BT4 does not fill the screen

    How can I get BT4 to fill the screen in Workstation 7? I don't mean 'full screen'. The BT4 OS window is only using about 30% of the screen space when Workstation is maximised.

    I have installed BT4 PreFinal and VMWare Tools using Workstation, by following the guide on this forum.

    Thanks in advance.

    EDIT: Found it: in Workstation: View>Autofit Guest. Please delete this thread is possible....sorry!

    you need to install vmware tools.


    1. Choose VM > Install VMware Tools.

    The guest operating system mounts the VMware Tools installation virtual CD.

    2. Double-click the VMware Tools CD icon on the desktop.

    Note: In some Linux distributions, the VMware Tools CD icon may fail to appear when you install VMware Tools within an X windows session on a guest. In this case, you should continue installing VMware Tools as described in Installing VMware Tools from the Command Line with the Tar Installer, beginning with step

    3. Double-click the RPM installer in the root of the CD-ROM.

    4. Enter the root password.

    5. Click Continue.

    The installer prepares the packages.

    6. Click Continue when the installer presents a dialog box saying Completed System Preparation.

    A dialog appears for Updating system, with a progress bar. When the installer is done, VMware Tools are installed. There is no confirmation or finish button.

    7. In an X terminal, as root (su -), configure VMware Tools.

    vmware-config-tools.pl

    Respond to the questions the installer displays on the screen. Press Enter to accept the default value.

    Note: Be sure to respond yes when the installer offers to run the configuration program.

    8. Launch the VMware Tools background application:

    It was solved... And while installing vmtools, vmware already gives a link to a very clear help file, there's no need to explain how to install it.
