Screen resolution problems with Parrot in a VM (VMware)

I had a terrible time getting VMware to run Parrot in a native resolution on my monitor. Parrot didn’t seem to have the right settings for 2550×1440.

So I had to use xrandr to –newmode, — addmode, and — output the proper settings. (Check this link: under “undetected resolutions” for details)

The problem was, the mouse and screen didn’t line up. Bummer!!! But dont worry, it’s just that VM doesn’t reset the view dynamically when you change it in the guest OS.

Exit full screen mode and go back into it. Voila! Resolved.
Yeah, I know, simple right?
