#1995: Resize of VM window fails

 I started the "vmdk" (OSGeo-live 11.0) file like explained in the
 [https://live.osgeo.org/en/quickstart/virtualization_quickstart.html
 documentation].

 It basically works, but the display resolution is only 800x600 and I
 cannot change it. I also ticked "Auto-resize Guest display", but it
 does not help. Strangely, I run OSGeo-live 10.0 with the exact same
 settings on the same machine. There the automatical resize works.

 My guest operating system is Ubuntu 16.04.

 Do you have any idea why my OSGeo-live 11.0 does not want to resize?

Comment (by wildintellect):

 We hit this a on a few machines, but not all, at the some workshops at
 FOSS4G. In most cases re-installing the vbox guest utils and restarting
 the VM solved it. Not really sure why.

Comment (by bufferclip):

 Thanks for the hint!

 I tried this one:

 {{{
  sudo apt-get --reinstall install virtualbox-guest-utils
 }}}

 But it still does not work. Or do you mean something else with "re-
 installing"?

 That is what I was thinking. I can't recall if I did an ```sudo apt-get
 update``` first. What version of VirtualBox are you using?

 I did the {{{sudo apt-get update}}} before as well.

 The version of my Virtual Box  is {{{5.0.40_Ubuntu r115130}}}
