Here is a picture of the problem: http://screencast.com/t/x0rpYrqa

For some reason, Ubuntu 12.10 32-bit in VMWare Fusion 3.1.1 is showing multiple small screens. I am not aware if Ubuntu 12.10 is or isn't supported with this version of VMWare, but if anyone could help that would be great.


VMware Fusion 3.1.x is quiet old. The release notes says it only supports up to Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. I don't think 12.10 is well supported anyway, especially when you run Unity.


Try to ssh to your guest and install VMware tools in it. Also try to install a different DM/WM like xfce4, lxde, fluxbox/openbox or awesome and see if that works better.
