I've installed Ubuntu 12.10 desktop as a virtual machine on my VMware ESXi server. And i have no idea why the screen looks like this. And i can't find anything by googeling. Anyone?

Resolution error?

If you check here and here you can see that you need esxi version 5.1

Not sure why I cannot comment on your question but do you have such version or an older ones?

that's strange :P (the comment bit) ... My ESXi version is 4.0.0 which must be the problem. thanks @alex88 :) – ClydeFrog Jan 9 '13 at 10:40
I think that's due my low reputation. Your welcome ;) – alex88 Jan 9 '13 at 10:52
