I've had the same issue with the previous version but I was able to fix it. I've just updated to ubuntu 13.04 and now have the same problem again. Basically, I cannot install the guest additions from the desktop because the compiz application fails and I just see the background, there is no way for me to autorun the vbox additions. So I need to open the command shell from GRUB, mount the cd and run the Linux Additions from there. Everything is fine for step one and two. However, when I try
I receive an error message regarding Read-only file system.
mkdir: cannot create directory `/tmp/selfgz741': Read-only file system Cannot create target directory /tmp/selfgz741
Here is the permissions for the /tmp folder:
drwxrwxrwt root root tmp
I'm wondering what is required so that I can write in the /tmp folder. Also, when I'm in the console, i'm connected as root@virtualbox.
