I am running ubuntu 11.10 under VMware 9.0 (Host on Win 8). I have installed VMware tools. When I log into ubuntu, sometimes screen resolution changes to appropriate settings without problem and sometimes it does not.
When it doesn't fit itself, the appropriate screen resolution (1600 * 900 16:9) is not in the display resolution lists and so I can not fit the screen manually.
What is the problem?
UPDATE: I installed gnome desktop and when I login with Gnome-Desktop option, it is just fine.
