How can I change the screen resolution in a VMware Virtual Machine running Ubuntu to be able to view it in full-screen?
It will work best, if you install the VMWare Tools. There is a kb article for you: http://kb.vmware.com/selfservice/microsites/search.do?language=en_US&cmd=displayKC&externalId=1022525
This will enable some features like shared clipboard.
To view Ubuntu in fullscreen inside VMware, follow these steps after enabling 3D acceleration in VMware:
Install VMware tools in Ubuntu to enable dynamic screen re-sizing
Change the display option to "Automatic/host screen"
Ctrl+Alt+Enterto enable/disable full-screen mode.
- install vmware tools:
sudo ./vmware-install.pl -d
Resolutionselect it, and move dialog box to right: click
Go to Devices --> click on "Insert Guest Additions CD image.." after clicking on this, you will see one CD ROM in dock options. Click on it and run software. Restart the machine after installation. If it doesn't work, open terminal and type
sudo apt --fix-broken install
after this command try to install CD image again and it will work.
2nd option, Go to terminal and type
select your screen size by
xrandr -s "available size"
