Running Ubuntu 12.10 on VMware Player 5.0.1 build-894247. I have installed the VMware Tools and can choose the resolution 800x600 and up to 2560x1600. So I have a fair amount of resolutions to choose from.

But my laptops native resolution, and the one that Windows 7 is running on, is 1366x768. Why can't I get that resolution in Ubuntu on VMware? Those 3 extra pixels on each side is very annoying - especially when the mouse pointer moves there and directs the input outside Ubuntu.

Is there any way to edit the resolutions I can choose from in Ubuntu?
