It seems that the program synaptic may help you: synaptic is a graphical package manager. To use synaptic root privileges are required (you will be asked for a password on launch). When launched you can navigate to File->Save Markings As... and select a destination for the package list. (Note: since synaptic is run as root the folder "Desktop" is ...

Ubuntu's packages that you download are stored in /var/cache/apt/archives. A thing that might work would be to use scp to copy the files over the internet (via SSH) to your VM machine, and then install them using gdebi using th: mkdir ~/Desktop/old-ubuntu-debs scp -r USERNAME@IP_ADDRESS:/var/cache/apt/archives/ ~/Desktop/old-ubuntu-debs/ cd ...

To provide a little more information, these are the actual steps to take to setup a bridged network: To enable bridged networking, all you need to do is to open the Settings dialog of a virtual machine, go to the "Network" page and select "Bridged network" in the drop down list for the "Attached to" field. Finally, select desired host interface ...

Try downgrading (Some issues have been addressed with the newer versions of VBox), make sure the versions correlate with the correct (Working) versions of VBox.

First, let me apologize for answering my own question. Second, I have, in fact, conquered the failsafe.conf startup delay problem. While I realize there's been no torrent of activity on this question, I've seen enough activity on various other threads about similar failsafe/boot delay problems that I'm posting my research and solution for the benefit of ...

I had the same issue. I found that the source of the problem is most probably that I'm using a custom kernel. Downloading the latest .deb package from virtualbox.org, and installing it by dpkg -i has solved the problem in my case.

I had this problem. I had virtual box 4.2 After upgrading to virtual box 4.3 the normal steps worked. Since my last ubuntu install was 'dirty' with trying all the advice I followed from this thread, it might be several things that worked, so please edit my answer if just updating vitualbox does the trick.

Quick answer. Some machines will have a firewall block (disable of ping response). By your description this appears to be the case. Some people disable ping (using a firewall) to prevent DOS attacks and unwanted scans of their computer. Disabling ping will not disable file transferring. In order to transfer a file to a computer you have to have some ...

Check Network Adapter page you've probably attached the 'Network Adapter' to 'NAT', the virtual machine will be on a different network so no ping unless you define a manual routing. If you have no knowledge on networks, the easy way is to attach the 'Network Adapter' to 'Bridge Adapter' and bridge to the interface you're using for you local network in you ...

I just had this problem as well. In the past this trick worked: sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-* This no longer worked for me with broken virtualbox-guest-x11 dependencies in 14.04.2. Instead once I installed I did the following: Update to latest VirtualBox version (4.3.12 to 4.3.26) Start the vm Select "Insert Guest Additions CD" from the ...

It seems that your system is outdated (NOT BROKEN) so you might update your OS and re-install VirtualBox using the official repository. Making a NEW VM is recommended as the version may be a bit different, just backup the HDD if necessary and while making a new one, use the HDD. This is my recommended solution: Open a REGULAR Terminal and Launch these ...

My mouse wheel is working again. Updated to the latest nvidia drivers and also did a Windows update. Because I did both at the same time I can't say which fixed it but if someone else is experiencing this issue perhaps try udpating the hosts drivers.

Perhaps this is what you found: https://insights.ubuntu.com/2015/01/15/virtualbox-extensions-for-maas/ More generally speaking, you'll need to set up your virtual networks with careful consideration for DHCP & DNS as mentioned in that post and in the MAAS docs.

Have you tried completely deleting that virtual machine, and creating a new one and installing from the new one? That sometimes does the trick. I also recommend using vmware player. Fewer errors occur when using vmware. I used virtualbox for quite a while, and I always got some sort of error. I then started using vmware, and i haven't gotten any errors ...

You should choose the second, "custom" option. By default, your virtual machine doesn't have access to real partitions on your hard drive. You probably can change this in your VM's options, but I'm not sure that it will work as expected (because I've never tried to do it :)).

VirtualBox will not expose the host GPU directly to a guest unless you use PCI passthrough. You could try that, but it is still experimental and might not work. It would be much easier to use the Linux host directly instead of trying to do this in a VM. If you really need a container for some reason, then try LXC (see the answer to Using GPU from a docker ...

Altough this doesn't fully address the question, in order to free up some space I suggest you to first remove the installed packages that are not needed anymore: sudo apt-get autoremove --purge Then you can clear the /var/log folder, which is extremely prone to grow in size over time, expecially if something at some point didn't work perfectly: sudo rm ...

Probably /dev/sda1 is a small conventional boot partition, while /dev/mapper contains a LVM2 logical volume consisting of the remainder of the filesystem as a single root LV, which would be the normal configuration if you had selected the "Use entire diskwith LVM" option during installation. For instance, my current (non virtual) installation has ...

There's a bunch of answers here which tell you that running games over virtualised hardware is a bad idea, and won't get you good performance for gaming. So don't do that. I'm not sure about virtualbox, but I've seen people talk about considerable success by having hardware dedicated to the virtual machine, albeit what I've seen mostly concerned using Xen ...

I was able to resolve the mounting issue by the reinstalling the linux image: sudo apt-get install --reinstall linux-image-$(uname -r) BTW, it all started with upgrading VirtualBox.

Try manually mounting it: Open a terminal. Type the following commands: sudo mount /dev/sr0 /mnt ls -l /mnt Then if the CD contents was shown, open /mnt in Nautilus (a.k.a File Manager) and intall the Guest Additions. If those steps didn't work, try this: Download the guest additions ISO from the VM (via virtualbox website). Right click on it --> ...

First, check if your virtualbox application is working properly by running it via command terminal. virtualbox For this application to work, you must have the virtualbox kernel module set up.

Did you setup the Virtualbox config correctly when creating the VM, i.e. did you select Ubuntu (64 bit) in the following dialogue? I had the same mouse integration problem when accidentally installing Windows 10 technical preview 32 bit using the 64 bit profile. (Also, the guest OS ran painfully slow.) After reinstalling with the correct profile, it went ...

I encountered this with a Windows 7 guest on Linux Mint Cinnamon 17, possibly due to a Windows upgrade. If you manually disconnect the disk volumes in the Windows File Explorer (right-click, then Disconnect) and then power off the guest OS and restart, it may fix the problem.

Mystery solved! I use "xkbset m" to enable keyboard keys to emulate mouse buttons. It turns out that this operation has a timeout (not documented in the horrible man-page) so this was what made the paste operation stop working. Since I ran "xkbset m" in my .bashrc that was the reason things would start working again whenever a new terminal was started. It is ...

They are just being legally careful to make sure you know that you are installing software so get it from the right places. It's super useful, go for it! (as long as you downloaded it from the official site)

When running inside a VM, Windows does not have direct access to the host's filesystem, which contains your shared folder (actually, if that was possible it would most certainly destroyed the filesystem when two OSes tried to write data to it). Instead, VirtualBox (guest additions) provides a translation layer between your guest OS and the host filesystem. ...

Developing from this answer, and in fact pretty well explained also in this other post.

There is 510MB of sda2 extended partition in between. You have to get rid of that, only then you can resize sda1. As far as I know there is only one way to achieve this. You have to create the partition table once again


0

That's because you have /dev/sda2 "in the middle", and since the scheme you see in gparted is a physical representation of the partitions on the disk, extending /dev/sda1 would actually mean overwhelming /dev/sda2's space, which of course is not allowed. So you need to first remove /dev/sda2 in order to extend /dev/sda1


2

You can only resize partitions to include adjacent free space. In your case there is none, because sda1 is at the beginning of the drive and there's another partition sda2 right behind it. Since sda2 is an empty extended partition, I recommend that you delete it, then resize sda1.


3

You have an extended partition /dev/sda2 which contains unallocated space, delete the partition first and then extend the 1st partition /dev/sda1

Compare the free mem: line with the swap: used line and you can see that there isn't enough available RAM to turn swap off. You will need to increase the amount of RAM available to the VM. You do this in the setting for the machine in the manager by moving the Base memory pointer or keying in a higher value in the box to the right of the pointer as below:

Go To the 'File' menu, and activate 'Environment setting (P)'. Select 'Display', and change the setting for 'Maximum guest screen size' to 'hint', which allows you to set an arbitrary size for both width and height (eg., 1920 and 1200). Reboot the virtual machine and enjoy it.

Remove sudo, just do: ssh nameofvminstance then enter the password.

In my experience, this isn't an issue with Ubuntu as I have suffered it on non Ubuntu based operating systems in Virtualbox such as EvolveOS. Seems to be a problem with Virtualbox v4.3.24.
