comment Creating Your Own Mount Point for USB Drive
missed that. sorry. It should stay but it's still a good form to make a note that you should make sure the mount point exists yet. In fact if you change /bin/sh to /bin/bash we can add in some error check code but meh

comment How Do I Fix This Boot Issue
Did you actually switch to Kubuntu, or are you still working with Elementary OS? Because Elementary OS in any way shape or form is offtopic here, and the Kubuntu theme is just the theme - not actually Ubuntu/Kubuntu.

@heemayl doh, forgot about that, however, we can't always be certain the shell script is a bash script - there are other shell languages, such as zsh. Added it anyways, though.

comment Applications are killed during shutdown
@alexy13 By being careful next time, you can avoid the problem. The big issue is that there's no way to have VirtualBox on its own inform the system there's unfinished work. That functionality doesn't exist.

comment Configure Linux Text mode Size (Rows and Columns)
The "size" seen there is probably controlled by the application to fit into a standard size terminal window in the GUI of 80x24. It's probably hard-coded as such.

comment package names of below libraries to do sudo apt-get
Those are already package names... zlib is its own package, so is freetype. The .i386 indicates the architecture - 32-bit. INstall the package with name:i386 instead. If any return "Not Found" or similar then we can look at it.
