I have the same issue. The UI in my VB Guest is tiny. The UI on my Windows 8 host appears appropriately sized. I'm using an Acer S7 Ultrabook with a high res display.

On your host OS, you create the shared folder by running VBoxManage sharedfolder add "VM name" --name "sharename" --hostpath "C:\test" On your guest system, you have to run mkdir /home/<user>/vboxshare sudo mount -t vboxsf -o uid=1000,gid=1000 share /home/<user>/vboxshare VBoxManage can change the settings of a VirtualBox, but if you ...

What are the different types of directories do we have? All directories are the same. There are no "types" of directories. In general: Linux does use permissions for owner, groups and others to decide if someone can see, edit/delete/write and, or execute. "root" is such a user. So is your account (admin through sudo) and any normal account on your ...

In my case (VM ubuntu 14.04 on an WIN7 system), I open /var/log/kern.log, and search for CD-ROM, I find that in ubuntu 14.04, VBOX CD-ROM is recognized as SCSI CD-ROM, and attached to /dev/sr0 kernel:[ 1.456xxx] scsi 1:0:0:0: CD-ROM VBOX CD-ROM 1.0 PQ: 0 ANSI: 5 kernel:[ 1.460xxx] sr 1:0:0:0: Attached scsi CD-ROM sr0 Now, after click the menu ...

When you installed the Virtual Machine, you must have set the CD drive to use the ISO image of the installer. Even after the Virtual Machine is fully installed, if that setting for the CD drive is still there, the VM will try to boot from the CD drive first instead of the virtual hard disk. Edit the settings of the virtual machine, review the configuration ...

The other answer is great for handling Virtualbox, but Vagrant features its own mechanisms for handling Virtual Machines, and as was mentioned in one of the comments, it supports more than just VirtualBox, just VMWare at the moment, but who knows later! This seems to work for me: vagrant global-status | awk '/running/{print $1}' | xargs -r -d '\n' -n 1 -- ...

To expand on what Sylvain Pineau said, typing sudo apt-get install virtualbox* is much easier (wildcards are accepted with apt-get).

You can also use gdebi, a tool similar to dpkg that also resolves any dependencies needed for the package to work. You just need to install gdebi (sudo apt-get install gdebi), and then run: sudo gdebi /PATH/TO/PACKAGE.deb

Your issue is that something between your VM and the 'outside' (that is, outside your computer) is blocking connections to the internet. You said you're using a Windows 7 host, and VirtualBox. Some steps to check: Make absolutely certain that your VM is set to either Bridged Mode (and linked to an actively-connected network adapter) or NAT. Check your ...

It seems that you can`t able to access Ubuntu archives (in.archive.ubuntu.com). May be you are not connected to the Internet. Change the VirtualBox network adapter to NAT mode. Then try again. NAT enables the Guest OS to access the Internet.

I found a link on the forum that might help you. It appears to be a BIOS issue. VM VirtualBox doesn't allow to enable 64-bit guest on Ubuntu 12.04 and Lenovo G500S

The responsible thing that is assigning dynamic IPs for you is called DHCP server so you have to enable it to resolve this issue. Try the following: Open VirtualBox's Preferences and under Network section, check the adapter named "vboxnet0" in "Host-Only Networks", double click on it and make sure to apply the following configuration there. 6- Double ...

At present VirtualBox 4.3. does not support USB 3.0. As a workaround you may succed in connecting your device to a USB 2.0 port or a USB 2.0 hub. According to VirtualBox ticket #8873 we may try to attach a USB 3.0 hard drive as a raw disk to the guest OS for a faster transfer speed but this may only work in some cases.

I saw a post in Lifehacker that shows how to do it with OS X Snow Leopard. I tested in my Ubuntu 14.04 and it worked pretty well. You have to use an OSX86 ISO and your CPU needs to support hardware virtualization, or else this will not work. Lifehacker article mentions that you'll be needing around 1 GB of RAM and that the virtual hard disk size should be ...

In my case, the issue was having virtualbox-4.1 installed alongside virtualbox-4.2. Once I uninstalled 4.1, I could run sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup and sudo modprobe vboxdrv just fine, as well as start VMs.

Check /etc/fstab?

Add the user as suggested by other answer using usermod command. Run the command id. You should see vboxusers in the list. If you don't see that, you may restart your computer and try id again. When you get vboxusers listed as a result of running id, you're good to use USB with virtual box.

I don't think you can necessarily do this as easily as you would a GUI. I recommend adding Ubuntu Desktop (or some GUI) first, and then trying to insert the Guest Additions ISO. If that still doesn't work, try navigating to the ISO file and burning it on to an actual medium. From there, you should mount your host CD/DVD drive and install additions that way. ...

TL;DR - any option is safe, option 1 being the easiest. When you created the virtual machine to install Ubuntu on, Virtualbox asked you to create a virtual drive. Unless you explicitly exposed your physical disks to your virtual machine (it's very unlikely you've done this accidentally), your virtual machine is constrained to that virtual disk (ATA VBOX ...

After much searching I've got this fixed. For anyone else stuck here was the solution sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia good luck out there!

You must use a Virtual Machine. You can use Virtualbox or maybe 'VMware and Workstation' But, on virtualbox be sure that you have an installation CD or a .ISO file to install onto it. Be careful coz sometimes it halts..

Yes I have tried and It will work. There is a known issue with VirtualBox and the Ubuntu 8.04 and later Server releases. The server release requires the PAE extension to be available on the virtual processor presented by VirtualBox to the guest OS. PAE support on the virtual processor is available in VirtualBox, but must be enabled on a per processor ...

Something similar to the original request can be found in the nvidia-prime project. However, after some tests, I decided to get back to optirun. The main reason is that prime keep your nvidia GPU always on, with a lot more power consumption.

dpkg does not manage dependencies. So now sudo apt-get install -f then install again sudo dpkg -i virtualbox-4.3_4.3.20-96996~Ubuntu~raring_i386.deb Otherwise, I completely agree with the suggestion to use KVM (virt-manager) rather then virtualbox and if you must use virtualbox, install it from the repositories. See: http://virt-manager.org/ The ...

I would advise that unless there is some particular reason you use that particular type of virtual machine manager, that you instead open the "Ubuntu Software Center" and select its own "Virtual Machine Manager" which automatically accommodates all of the dependencies without any necessity for pre-installing anything or, asking advice of others on this site, ...

You have to use the Host-only network. VB creates a virtual network with a virtual interfaces and virtual dhcp server. Make sure that, the DHCP server works fine. Follow these steps: File Networks Host only networks If it is empty you need to add a new network config. After that, you should able to ping your host from the guest OS or inversely.

Even though it is still 12.04, you have probably upgraded the kernel version. You will need to re-install the Virtualbox Guest Additions - mounting the additions disk is not enough (or needed after installation), it needs to be installed.

Assuming you're not using UEFI, and I see no reason as to why you should be. Also assuming you didn't set it up in some fancy pancy way originally, then yes, the first option is the correct one. By selecting /dev/sda it will be installed to the MBR of /dev/sda, which a BIOS should be able to boot.

If I understand you correctly, what you want to do, is use your flash drive as the 'harddrive' in Virtualbox. This way all your changes will be reflected on the flash drive. In order to do this, you will need to make a virtual hard drive that points to the physical device, then use the virtual hard drive with Virtualbox. Use the following command, ...

The following works for me: Shutdown Ubuntu Go to oracle VM virtual box manage -> settings -> storage. Delete the mounted .iso file under controller: IDE, and then add an empty disk. Start Ubuntu and go to Device -> Insert Guest Additions CD image -> browse to the .iso file you'd like to mount and then install. After installation, reboot Ubuntu and the ...

I'm not sure if this will work, but these are the files owned by vbosusers on my machine, where USB is working right under Virtual Box. sudo find / -group vboxusers /dev/vboxusb /dev/vboxusb/002 /dev/vboxusb/002/003 /dev/vboxusb/001 /dev/vboxusb/001/004 In another machine it looks like this sudo find / -group vboxusers /dev/vboxusb So it looks like ...

Try to open /etc/fstab and watch inside the UUID really matching with the sudo blkid command in a Terminal. In other way: Do sudo blkid in a Terminal. See the right UUID of the /boot/efi partition.

In this situation, I would install an entirely different desktop manager, since the problem is apparently with KDE, and use that for 24 hours, and then fix the actual problem tomorrow.

It seems that the problem is in the old Virtual Box Extension Pack as has been discussed here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/virtualbox/+bug/1386445 So this is basically not a bug, but another VB perk.

By default, ping doesn't stop sending packets until you hit Ctrl+C to send the KeyboardInterrupt signal (which tells the program to stop pinging and generate statistics). As such, you get hundreds of those lines, indicating the round-trip time, which ping packet you're getting echoed back to you (as you get them sent in sequence of 1, 2, 3, ...), and what ...

iptables is likely not the tool to do what you wish. However, you may want to use iptables to block access from the internet.
