    VirtualBox with XP Guest shows bad in FullScreen from shortcut

    Hi
    I wanted to resume my problem in the subject, so I hope you've understood a little:

    I have Ubuntu 10.10. I created a shortcut which starts the Windows XP guest in my Ubuntu. The shortcut is:
    VBoxSDL -vm "WindowsXP" -fullscreen

    If I run the Windows XP VM from VirtualBox itself, it looks better

    The main problem is with fonts. They don't look very good, little blurry when I run VM from shortcut

    Any ideas?
    TIA

    Do I need to make an update? If so, how can I do so that I don't loose my XP VM?

    Thanks

    Your version seems good.

    Did you install GuessAdditions?.
