Hello,

I have a Gentoo running as a VirtualBox guest on my work PC.

When I'm resizing the guest windows, I can see that the X screen is really resizing ... but not the applications running on it.
Consequently, LXPanel stays at it's original position as well as all other application launched.

Now, on the same machine, I have an Ubuntu guest as well, and when I'm resizing it's window, everything is following (panels are moving, applications resized to match new screen geometrie).

How can I do that on my Gentoo/LXDE VM ?

Bye

Laurent

In KVM this is done by running a service (spice-vdagent) in the VM; I'd assume VirtualBox provides something similar.

I did the installation as per the wiki and nothing is said about such service.

After some tests, it seems lxpanel is moving :D But, it do it several seconds after I'm resizing the "screen", and I would like having other applications' windows to follow (as I have with Ubuntu).
Especially for conky.

You'll want to unmask and emerge app-emulation/open-vm-tools to get the VMWare tools in your guest.

Emerging app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions would probably make more sense, what with it being a Virtualbox guest and all.
