I am unable to change the screen resolution. My PC is ASUS M/B and using onboard graphics. I installed the Ubuntu 11.10 thru VMware player. In the appearance window it is showing a resolution of 1920 x 1280 and I need to use mouse to cover various corners of screen. I tried to change the resolution but to no avail. Please tell me how to change resolution?

In VMware Player you can resize the program window.
