I followed this tutorial to create a virtual machine with ubuntu:
The last section in the tutorial is about how to use shared folders. I did everything that is described there and
sudo adduser username vboxsf worked just fine and my user has been added to the sharefolder. But now on my guest machine I can't find the shared folder. In the tutorial they say, it would now be created in computer->filesystem->media->sf_sharefoldername but a systemwide search for "sf_" didn't give any results. Also the path computer->filesystem doesn't exist. Instead I can access computer->media. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong/where the folder is and what it's name will be?
I don't think it's a duplicate of the question you linked, @N0rbert. As described in the tutorial that I linked, I did use the automount option of virtualbox
