Hi
Recently, Cinnamon Desktop is updated to version 4.8.x, As I am a fan of this desktop, so it compelled me to try it in VirtualBox. I installed it in Fresh FreeBSD under VirtualBox. However, after login the resolution is set to 8192x8192@60. However, my Laptop supports upto 1366x768@60. I tried to change it (to 1366x768) in "Display" under Control Center, but it is giving some DBUS error. Please check attached screenshot. A Google search shows different results.: for example, a bug, adding resolution (by xrandr) etc. Is it really a bug? Also, is adding resolution required here (as 1366x768 already present in Display dialogue box)? Kindly help me to fix this problem.
PS: DBUS is enabled, virtualbox-ose-additions is installed

If it's VirtualBox do you have the Guest Additions installed?

Do you installed Cinnamon with pkg?
The version of FreeBSD is well 12.2-RELEASE?
What's the output of xrandr?
Can you set a different resolution with xrandr -s ...?

Yes, I can change the resolution by:
Code:
xrandr -s 1366x768 -r 60
But, after reboot, it reverts back to 8192x8192. How can I keep the resolution at 1366x768 even after reboot?
