So, I've finally got Ubuntu to work in a VM (won't run native due to hardware issues), but now I need to see if there's a way I can persuade it to use the native resolution. Is there a way of getting it to work on WXGA instead of SVGA?

Thanks.

Do you have the VMware Tools installed? Or, if using VPC, which X server is running? As for getting it to run in widescreen resolutions, you'll probably have to add a modeline in xorg.conf for that. If you're lucky, you can maybe add that resolution by reconfiguring the X server and seeing if it offers a wide-screen res. Do sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg for that and step through (accepting the defaults) until you get to the resolution selection. Select your desired ones, then confirm and restart the X server.

I'm using VirtualBox, and have installed the additions package, but the only difference is that I now have pointer integration (which I'm not that bothered about).

There may be something in the restricted drivers section. Try looking there.

I've looked, it says something like 'there's no need for restricted drivers.

Reconfigure the X server (use the command I wrote above) and see if it offers the widescreen resolution(s) you want.
