You have downloaded and installed Ubuntu 10.10 on Virtual Box, but your widescreen 16:9 monitor is displaying Ubuntu as a 4:9 screen with black bands down either side.
What do you do?
–> Accessories –> Terminal)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose-guest-x11
Restart and check the screen size, seamless and full screen mode on ubuntu 10.10, all should work.
Let me know how it worked for you.
