For some reason in VirtualBox 6.x by default if you create a Linux virtual machine it uses VMSVGA video driver, however for some reason (probably because of older VirtualBox kernel module) that doesn't work well in VirtualBox and the screen doesn't resize when you resize the window. I found that everything works fine if I change the video driver to VBoxSVGA (shut down the virtual machine and click on Settings -> Display in VBox)

ahah - - it's seems that Adrian has it right - again
:number1:

that's what was wrong with the Kde respin that I'm running ATM
- - was messing around with install GA & that wasn't working:
it also shouldn't be necessary, either as the GA should be inbuilt into the MX respin.
:cool:
