Problem

A VM running under VMWare Player won't dynamically resize the "screen" on drag or full-screen.

Solution

cp /etc/vmware-tools/tools.conf.example /etc/vmware-tools/tools.conf

vi /etc/vmware-tools/tools.conf

Remove the # from this block:

[resolutionKMS]

# Default is true if tools finds an xf86-video-vmware driver with # version >= 13.2.0. If you don't have X installed, set this to true manually. # This only affects tools for Linux. enable=true

systemctl restart vmtoolsd.service

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
