How did you set up the VMware tools? I mean which procedure do you run to set up VMware tools?

Do you have bash shell access? (use alt + f1 / f3 when the ubuntu comes up).. you need to check the system logs in the /var/log directory

Please mark my comment as the Correct Answer if this solution resolved your problem

- Please confirm if you have done the ubuntu vmtools setup via the steps mentioned in the link: https://vitux.com/how-to-install-vmware-tools-in-ubuntu/ Or you ran the apt-get install open-vm-tools command?

- Kindly confirm the version of VMware Tools installed.

- If you are able to ssh to this machine? Can you uninstall the vmware tools and then try re-installing them?

Yes i confirm i install vmwaretools official and not open vm.

I'm a teacher my students install ubuntu 18.04 in same PC and same config, in some computers it works and others do not.

I don't test with ssh. I test tomorrow.

Thanks you for all.

I've same trouble with recent Ubuntu 18.04 update. Googling around found some workaround and now I'm stuck with Ubuntu (as guest) screen resolution.

Using official vmwaretools or open-vm-tools-desktop have same issue.
