(Attempt to) Fixing virtualized Fedora desktop not resolution autoresizing at host window resizing.

For XYZ reason I needed to setup a virtualized (VMWare on Windows) Fedora machine on my host. Everything went fine (despíste some BSOD due some crappy experiments in parallel but that’s another story :D ) in setup. However, I noticed that desktop resolution does not automatically resize when you change the VM window size (that’s really uncomfortable!); so after checking things like open-vm-tools-desktop were installed and such, I figured the following:

Wayland seems to have some issues there, so for me at least, the solution was switch my VM back to Xorg; configuring GDM (GNOME desktop manager) for that. How do you do that?

  • Edit /etc/gdm/custom.conf as root (in a hurry? Put sudo nano /etc/gdm/custom.conf in a terminal).
  • Search # WaylandEnable=false and uncomment it. That will make in next reboot GDM will use XOrg instead.
  • Save changes (Ctrl-O if you use nano), and reboot.

That should work :D (be patient, the resolution changed after login)!
