I am an avid Gnome 3 user. I have a CentOS 6.5 server that I use for my Redhat/CentOS, Fedora virtual machines. When I connect to a Fedora 21 Workstation VM using virt-viewer or another spice client, the guest automatically changes the screen resolution to match the current size of the client window. However, I have noticed that Fedora 21 spins with LXDE, XFCE or KDE don't do this. If I open the display settings, it will show the client window size in the list of suggested resolutions and will let me resize. However, these desktop environments don't automatically resize. Has anyone figured out a way around this to get the guest to perform an auto-resize?
