Screen resolution VB 4.0 / Kubuntu 10.10 guest

Postby AlGaN » 31. Dec 2010, 14:31

Hello,

upgraded to VB 4.0 on a Windows Vista Host (32 bit), guest is Kubuntu 10.10 Maverick, DM KDE 4.5 (?), after installing Guest additions I can't get the screen resolution to 1680 x 1050 (host resolution), I only get 1280 x 1024. I have installed all packages (dkms, linux-headers-generic), disabled 3D in VB guest graphics settings, still no avail...

Thanks for any hints,
AlGaN

Do you look at the Display applet, or did you actually put the VM in fullscreen mode?

Hi,

I don't know what you mean with Display applet. I don't start the VM in fullscreen mode, just normal window. But if I maximize the guest desktop doesn't get maximized too instead it is fixed to 1280x1024 resolution? I reinstalled guest additions, no change...

Did you install dkms before you installed the version 4.0.0 guest additions (in the guest)?
try running:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup

Watch for any errors.
Also if you press host+f (full screen toggle) does it go full screen and do you have any black around the sides?

Hello,

yes, I installed dkms before installation of VB 4.0 guest additions.
If I press Host Key + F the VM goes to fullscreen and I have black at the sides.

I ran:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup


Output was:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
Removing existing VirtualBox DKMS kernel modules ...done.
Removing existing VirtualBox non-DKMS kernel modules ...done.
Building the VirtualBox Guest Additions kernel modulesDoing non-kernel setup of the Guest Additions ...done.
You should restart your guest to make sure the new modules are actually used

After restarting unfortunately there is no change, resolution still fixed to 1280x1024 :(

If that was the complete output then not all of the drivers were installed.
Did you also install build-essential? The (3) requirements are below.

sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic

Do you by any chance define a resolution in the Guest manually through some configuration file or did you disable the automatic resizing in VB from the Machine menu? If you can't enable automatic resizing because it's greyed out, then the GA aren't working properly.

Hello,

sorry, had no time anymore yesterday evening, btw. happy new year to everyone :)

I tried to (re)install all three requirements again:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic
[sudo] password for lk:
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut       
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen... Fertig
build-essential ist schon die neueste Version.
dkms ist schon die neueste Version.
linux-headers-generic ist schon die neueste Version.
0 aktualisiert, 0 neu installiert, 0 zu entfernen und 2 nicht aktualisiert.

The german text means that all packages are already the newest versions?

I did not define any manual resolution in the guest (I don't even know how to do that...), and the automatic resizing in the Machine menu of VB is not greyed out, selecting has no effect though...

Ok, then do the following:
- Click on the automatic resize in the Machine menu;
- Resize the Guest Window (must be normal window, not maximized);
If the resolution adapts, you're done, else do the above again. That should be enough. If that still doesn't work, post your /var/log/Xorg.0.log of the VM as attachment.

very odd, I don't see anything wrong in the log. I just updated my own Kubuntu VM and that one has no problems. The resolution updates just fine to fith the window.

I had a similar problem on both my laptop and desktop, and the following corrected the problem. Thanks to all who gave the codes; I've put them together.
It seems the problem is related to the absence of xorg.conf?
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo apt-get install dkms build-essential linux-headers-generic

Enter your password, type 'y' and enter when you are prompted for it, and wait for the download and install to finish
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo /etc/init.d/vboxadd setup

In my case, the screen maximized to a 4:3 ratio, but not widescreen. Higher resolutions were not shown in the display applet.
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo service kdm stop

You will be dumped to a non-gui console screen. Login again.
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo Xorg -configure

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo service kdm start

A fullscreen display is acheived.

I am sure there must be a simpler way to do this; this just worked for me.

Hi rajdeep,

I tried your commands, but no luck with that either :(

When I execute
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo Xorg -configure


I get some errors from Xorg server telling that a VM module could not be loaded, don't know if that is related:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
[...]
(EE) Failed to load module "vmgfx" (module does not exist, 0)
(EE) vmware: Please ignore the above warnings about not being able to load module/driver vmgfx
(++) Using config file: "/home/lk/xorg.conf.new"
(==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d"

Hi,
I get the same error but since the message asks us to ignore it, I did not bother.

You could try copying the xorg.conf.new file which you have created in your home directory to /etc/X11, and rename it to xorg.conf.
Also, open the xorg.conf file which you created and add the monitor resolutions you want into it. Save, logout and login again. Check if these resolutions are now available in system settings > display.

Rajdeep

Edit: Sorry, I just had a look at your xorg log.
The following line suggests that your monitor is not detected properly, and is in fact trying to protect your monitor. I expect changing the settings in /etc/X11/xorg.conf will help
[ 39.179] (II) VBoxVideo(0): Not using default mode "1680x1050" (hsync out of range)

PS: I am contributing what little knowledge I have. I suspect this is not a virtualbox issue but a kubuntu issue.
