Guest Ubuntu Full Screen di Virtual Box

Hari ini temanku Totok Harmoyo mencoba untuk menginstal Ubuntu 10.10 di notebooknya. Opsi terdekat adalah menginstallnya secara virtual dengan aplikasi Oracle Virtualbox diatas host Windows 7 Ultimate.

Instalasi berjalan lancar sentosa. Masalah pertama yang ditemui adalah resolusi maximal pada guest Ubuntu hanyalah 1024x768. Sedangkan layar notebook Lenovo IdeaPad Y450 sendiri memiliki resolusi max 1366x768, sehingga jika guest Ubuntu dijalankan secara fullscreen akan menyisakan space hitam di kiri kanan layar, dan tentu saja hal ini tidak nyaman di mata. Instalasi VirtualBox Guest Addition juga tidak banyak membantu.

Solusinya ternyata cukup mudah. Kita hanya perlu menambah beberapa baris berikut di file /etc/X11/xorg.conf untuk menambahkan resolusi.

1. Buka Terminal, ketikkan baris berikut :
$ sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

2. Akan tampil aplikasi gEdit dengan layar kosong. Copy-paste baris berikut :


Section "Screen"
        Identifier    "Default Screen"
        Device        "VirtualBox graphics card"
        Monitor       "Generic Monitor"
        DefaultDepth  24
        SubSection "Display"
                Depth         24
                Modes         "1366x768" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection

3. Oya harap sesuaikan dengan resolusi maximal layar notebook anda. Seperti yang dilihat diatas, saya menambahkan resolusi 1366x768 sebelum resolusi standar 1024x768, 800x600 dan 640x480

4. Oke silakan save file ini, lalu lakukan restart pada virtual machine anda. Pada next reboot, resolusi pasti sudah bisa fullscreen sesuai resolusi layar.

Semoga berguna.
