I currently have two VM's with my VMWare Workstation 10.0.1:
Linux Mint (Cinnamon) and Lubuntu (LXDE). The host system is Windows 8.1. With Mint, the auto fit guest feature works after installing the VMWare tools and rebooting. I can resize as I please and extend to multiple monitors. All works. With Lubuntu however, nothing works. I have to adjust the resolution manually, and oddly enough 1920x1080 is missing entirely.
I searched for a solution and I guess I could hack something with xrandr, but that seems like too much trouble.
Could someone please tell me:
1) Why does auto fit guest work with some distros and not with others? Is this dependent on the GUI that is used? (Cinnamon vs. LXDE)
2) Which distros/GUIs do support the feature out of the box?
