Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) – Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors


ubuntu-logo

Booting in to a clean installation of Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) with VMWare Tools installed I get a Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors error:

Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors.
Could not apply the stored configuration for monitors.

The solution is to remove monitors.xml from /home/<username>/.config.

To do this I opened a Terminal and changed the directory to .config:

cd .config

I backed-up and then deleted monitors.xml:

cp monitors.xml monitors.bak
rm monitors.xml

I rebooted for good measure – now VMWare Tools adjusts my resolution without errors.
