Change monitor resolution GhostBSD in VMWare?

Post by akrom »

Hai All,
I've installed the lastest GhostBSD, I install in VMWare Workstation. Smoothly install and I very like it. But after installing, my screen GhosBSD resolution still max 1280x768 so I can't see Mate bottom panel. See my SS below:

I've found this thread that is similar with my problem in this link:
https://forums.ghostbsd.org/viewtopic.php?t=1033

I make file screen-resolution.conf as guide in the thread above. But after login My Mate desktop has error. This error is actually no problem but I think very annoying me, See SS below:

Finally I can see my Mate bottom panel. but if I crosschek with display GUI and xrandr resolution still 1280x768. See SS below:

This my host monitor resolution 1366x768(left) and also setting display in VMWare for Guest OS(right) .See SS below:

How to change my GhostBSD resolution to 1366x768 so I can fit GhostBSD in my monitor laptop and how to remove the message error popup after I login? This error message is very annoying to me, but there is no problem, the error message disappear then I can look my bottom Mate GhostBSD.

TIA

I Think this problem is bug in the lastest version of GhostBSD, because in all installed Linux OS distribution in my Virtual Machine in this case in VMWare Workstation is just fine, I can set the resolution monitor in VM higher then 1366x768 with the same MATE Desktop Environment, but unfortunetly GhostBSD can't do that. See my SS in Debian Bullseye with MATE DE below.:

This is annoying to me even there is no problem after that message error dissapear. But my desktop become no aesthetic anymore. Maybe someday dev can't fixed this bug.

TIA
