I reviewed the higher wiki/Higher_Screen_Resolution page and made the xorg.conf.d/00-virtualbox-monitor.conf (first the dir, then the file) and copy pasted from the wiki page into the 00-virtualbox-monitor.conf changing only the Option “PreferredMode” “1600x1200” line to the resolution that I wanted then rebooted but no change so I wanted to check what things I might be doing wrong (i did this in whonix not the host OS i assume). When i rebooted it booted a command prompt and not into xwin/kde, not sure why. I know if in the gateway if i lower the mem in virtbox it will boot to a command prompt but this computer supports a fairly high rez and I am just wanting fairly modest (just a bit more than 1024x768) increase.
Only two questions I can think of are #1 I am pretty sure this was supposed to be done in whonix? but perhaps I am wrong? maybe the host OS? #2 in the 00-virtualbox-monitor.conf are there any other lines that should be modified?
I also tried the line:
vboxmanage setextradata “VM Name” “CustomVideoMode1” “1440x900x32”
putting in the “Whonix-Workstation” for the “VM Name” (which was the default name) and the rez I wanted for “1440x900x32” on my host Linux OS but still nada when i rebooted whonix.
Not sure here, suggestions?
