Fix Resolution of Debian VM in GNOME Boxes

Published on 2021-02-09

Every time I install a Debian Desktop (GNOME) in a VM on GNOME Boxes I forget how to get the automatic screen resolution resize thing working in the VM when resizing the GNOME Desktop window. With Fedora (and CentOS) VMs this works out of the box, but not on Debian. It is very easy, but you need to know which package to install.

$ sudo apt install spice-vdagent

Reboot after installing this package and all is good to go!
