Oracle - VirtualBox - A better resolution with a guest Ubuntu

By installing a Ubuntu guest with VirtualBox on Windows, you likely found a basic resolution, such as 1024*768.

Unfortunately, you have a screen with a 1920*1200 resolution, it's impossible to let this like that.

There is of course a solution to increase this basic setup, but with a maximum of 1440*1050.

Better than nothing.

Let's do it.

What to do?

Open a Terminal and write it down this line:

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-x11

Restart your Linux, and you're done.


This kind of library should have been installed by default.
I think it will in the future.
Anyway, good job, you are now ready to code. cool
