VMware Workstation Player Guest - Korora 25 GNOME / Cinnamon

Hello,

Thank you for creating Korora. I really appreciate the work that his gone into the design and styling.

I'm using both the Cinnamon Version and the GNOME version as a guest in VMware Workstation Player. With the Cinnamon version I get full screen straight away, but with the GNOME version full screen does not work. I have checked that 'open-vm-tools' is installed on both versions.

Are you able to help?

Thank you.

It may a question that would be better asked of VMware but I wonder if it has something to do with Gnome using Wayland. You could try to start Gnome with Xorg. There is an option on the log in screen.

Thanks, does the Cinnamon flavour not use Wayland then? Thanks

No it doesn't.
