Resize of VM window fails
|Reported by:||bufferclip||Owned by:|
I started the "vmdk" (OSGeo-live 11.0) file like explained in the documentation.
It basically works, but the display resolution is only 800x600 and I cannot change it. I also ticked "Auto-resize Guest display", but it does not help. Strangely, I run OSGeo-live 10.0 with the exact same settings on the same machine. There the automatical resize works.
My guest operating system is Ubuntu 16.04.
Do you have any idea why my OSGeo-live 11.0 does not want to resize?

fixed in 12dev alpha1; new ticket for additional issues
We hit this a on a few machines, but not all, at the some workshops at FOSS4G. In most cases re-installing the vbox guest utils and restarting the VM solved it. Not really sure why.
