I'm stuck with connecting shared folder in Ubuntu 14.04 as a host. I've installed virtualbox-guest-additions-iso package but I still can't install Guest Additions from VirtualBox itself (this no headers found error) and mount shared folder as mount -t vboxfs ..

@alb3rtano0012 - Installing the guest additions in Ubuntu is supported here as the iso and other packages are in the repositories. See the link I gave as a duplicate. –  bodhi.zazen Apr 25 '14 at 17:11
Why you don't want to use the ISO from the host? (Devices > Insert Guest Additions CD Image) –  alb3rtano0012 Apr 25 '14 at 17:30
Depends on how you install VBox. You can use the iso from wherever you wish, does not matter, personal preference . Using the ubuntu packages integrates installation as shown in the link I gave. –  bodhi.zazen Apr 25 '14 at 17:39
