I tried to get virtualbox to run an Ubuntu 12.04.02 64-bit on fullscreen in my Windows 7 host machine, and read that I require a virtualbox-ose-guest-x11 for it. When I try to install it on the guest Ubuntu machine, it fails with a dependencies error.

The solution it's been to use the Devices menu from Virtualbox, then click in "Install guest additions..." and follow that menu.
