    Fix Ubuntu 10.10 screen size on VirtualBox 

    Issue:

    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)
    Type
    sudo apt-get update

    Type,
    sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)

    Now, type

    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.

    Virtualbox and Laptop 

    The trouble with Virtualbox and Linux, is that you don’t know whether the bug is with virtualbox or with the Linux distro you are trying. 

    So my experiment is to have an identical version of Linux running on Virtualbox and on the laptop at the same time. 

    Good idea. 

    Currently checking out Ubuntu 10.10 with Macbuntu 10.10 installed. So far it is solid.
