Bug Description

I am testing 12.04 Ubuntu amd64 dvd.
While testing using Oracle VM version 4.1.8 I found out that screen resolution can be set only to 800x600 or 1024x768.
My laptop is of 14" and supports 1366x768. Due to this I can't see full screen optimized to my laptop.
I am using Dell N4010.

Thanks for reporting, but this is not a bug if you are running Ubuntu as a VM inside Virtualbox, since Virtualbox only uses the basic VESA driver by default. You must install Virtualbox's Guest additions to access higher resolutions.

  "While the virtual graphics card which VirtualBox emulates for any guest operating system provides all the basic features, the custom video drivers that are installed with the Guest Additions provide you with extra high and non-standard video modes as well as accelerated video performance." -- https://www.virtualbox.org/manual/ch04.html

Changed in ubiquity (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid

Okay. Thanks for the clarification.
