Hello,I am a new user of #! and have the same resolution problem in VirtualBox.I cannot use full screen resolution even after installing additions.Have you find the way to correct this ?
I did the terrible mistake of installing the HWE stack last week. Since then my screen resolution inside VirtualBox has a maximum of 640x480. I am strongly disappointed since my notion of LtS was LONG and SUPPORT. I downloaded the .iso to install the guest additions (again). This failed.
What can I do to get the screen resolution working? The desktop is not usable at all.
After installing Ubuntu 14.10 guest on VirtualBox running on windows 7 host, I am stuck with 640×480 screen resolution. The ‘Detect Displays' button on the ‘Display Settings' Settings screen is not reachable, because 640×480 is too small.
