    Default How To: Make AutoFit work in VMWARE

    This isn't my work. I found the fix on a cached page of the old forum, but since I couldn't find it here, figured I would post to help people in the future:


    1. Install VMTools.
    Lots of threads on this. I simply did a "apt-get open-vm-tools"

    2. modify xorg.conf
    2a. "kate /etc/X11/xorg.conf"
    2b. Find the section called 'Graphics device section' and change the code to this:
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "VESA Framebuffer"
    Boardname "vmware"
    Busid "PCI:0:15:0"
    Driver "vmware"
    Screen 0
    EndSection

    3. reboot, startx, and wait a second and it should resize perfectly.

    Minor note, correct usage of the apt-get command is needed

    Code:
    apt-get install open-vm-tools
