[Arch Linux]Cannot fit to guest in Vmware workstation

Although Fit Guest Now was enabled after open-vm-tools was installed in Arch Linux, however clicking on Fit Guest Now did not have effect.

I tried these steps and worked for me.

  1. Enable Accelerate 3D graphics in VM’s display settings
  2. s1

  3. Install xf86-video-vmware driver sudo pacman -S xf86-video-vmware

Ensure vmtoolsd starts, if not do this sudo systemctl enable --now vmtoolsd, you will immediately see the effect.
