I have several versions of LinuxMint (9, 11 and 12) as well as a few other distros running perfectly at 1920 x 1080 resolution (my native resolution) under VMWare Player. I have never had a problem specifying this resolution, without or without the VMWare tools installed.
Recently I also installed LinuxMint13, but for some reason the 1920 x 1080 resolution is not available for selection. Unfortunately I don't how to (or even its possible) to manually specify a 1920 x 1080 resolution? Perhaps there is a sudo command from a terminal I can run to do this? Can anyone suggest anything?
I am using the host setting for monitors in VMWare Player as shown below.
