Have you installed VMware Tools ?
I've got BackTrack 5 running and I was just curious why I'm unable to run it widescreen. I can change the resolution settings, currently running it at 1400x1050, but I have thick, black, vertical bars on each side. I'm running BT5 as a virtual machine using VMware Fusion 4.1.1. Does this have something to do with VMware or BT itself? I'm able to edit the resolution in the GUI, maybe I should be doing this from the cli? Just wondering if anybody else has come across this problem?
I thought I did. When I got to attempt to reinstall the VMware Tools, it states 'Cancel VMware Tools Installation' So I'm not sure if it hung, or if there is something else I need to do. In the past, when I installed VMware tools on Linux a file on the desktop would appear, or maybe in a specific folder. Is that correct? I think I'm missing a step
