Screen Resolution Bug[edit]

VirtualBox Screen Resolution Bug.

If the display presents like the image on the right-hand side, then you are affected by a screen resolution bug which only occurs in VirtualBox. To correct the resolution, try the following workarounds.

VirtualBox Virtual Screen Menu Workaround

  1. Power off the VM.
  2. Restart the VM.
  3. Maximize the VM window after start of the VM as soon as possible.
  4. VirtualBox VM WindowViewVirtual Screen 1Choose any, resize to another resolution
  5. VirtualBox VM WindowViewAuto-resize Guest Display
Normal presentation.

Desktop Resolution Settings Workaround

If the method above did not work, another option is the following. Inside the virtual machine:

VirtualBox VMSVGA Graphics Controller Setting Workaround

If it still does not work, a final option is the following.

Inside the virtual machine [1]:

Install xserver-xorg-video-vmware.

1. Update the package lists.

sudo apt-get update

2. Upgrade the system.

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

3. Install the xserver-xorg-video-vmware package.

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-vmware

The procedure of installing xserver-xorg-video-vmware is complete.

On the host:

  1. Power off the VM.
  2. VirtualBoxclick a VMSettingsDisplayGraphics ControllerVMSVGAOK
  3. VirtualBoxclick a VMSettingsDisplayGraphics Controllerincrease slider for Video Memory to 128OK (This is already the case in newer Whonix ™ versions.)
