How to auto resize KVM guest?

Hello All

I just installed Kali Linux with XFCE as a guest in KVM. My host OS is Fedora Gnome. How to auto-resize the guest OS in KVM? Guest Linux OS with Gnome will auto-resize though, not XFCE.

How to make XFCE DE auto-resize in KVM?

Had a little improvement.
  1. Installed these packages: spice-vdagent qemu-guest-agent
  2. Rebooted the system
  3. Ran the command: xrandr --output Virtual-1 --auto

Cool!!! The screen auto resizes automatically.

Now I added this command in .bashrc file. But after reboot, nothing happens. But as soon as I start terminal, the screen/window auto resizes.

So, how do I auto resize without opening the terminal window after login?
