VirtualBox Display stuck at 800x600

Win10 Host, KDE-Dev Unstable, fully updated guest, and using VMSVGA as my driver, which has always worked in the past, but now my display seems stuck at 800x600.

Operating System: Manjaro Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.80
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.70.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2
Kernel Version: 5.4.32-1-MANJARO
OS Type: 64-bit
Processor: 1 × Intel® Core™ i7-6600U CPU @ 2.60GHz
Memory: 1.9 GiB of RAM
Graphics Processor: llvmpipe

I blame the Windows 10 host :stuck_out_tongue:
Did you try switching to the VBoxSVGA driver?

VirtualBox defaults do VMSVGA (Linux guest) - you need to set the screen size inside the VM to the desired size.

If you want the screen to resize on vm window resize you need the VBoxSVGA - which is supported for a Windows wm but unsupported for a Linux OS.
