    Default I can not figure out how to work xorg

    I unfortunately, am having the same problem with my VMWare installation. I installed the VMWare tools, and my resolution refuses to go above 1024x768. It just pops back to that same resolution whenever I try to change it. I was hoping that guide would be of use to you ;-\

    when i try xrandr --output default --mode 1680x1050_60.00

    i get: xrandr: configure ctrc 0 failed

    when i try xrandr -s 1680x1050

    i get: Failed to change the screen resolution!

    I am using VMWare Fusion 3.1 on Mac OS X 10.6.4 with a MacBook Pro i7 w/ a nvidia GeForce GT 330M and the latest version of VMWare Tools. The virtual machine is using the Ubuntu 64 bit kernel to emulate BT4 and I have the enable 3D graphics option enabled. (as these are all the same options as I have on my ubuntu install, I don't see why it would change for BT4 - some help would be appreciated! >_<

    BT4 has a custom built kernel in order for all the tools to work with it, so its not the same as Ubuntu, the developers here try to dissuade people from treating this as just Ubuntu with some tools added, there was a lot more work going into it than that
