I'm pretty new to Ubuntu. I want to try it as my development environment, since it will be cleaner than my home PC which is filled with games and kid's homeworks. I tried different Linux distros and decide that Ubuntu was the best in terms of speed/easyness of use. I liked Manjaro interfase more, but find quite difficult to use.
So, I want to have a folder in the host (Windows 10) which will be shared to the guest (Ubuntu 18.10), I'm using VirtualBox 5.2.22
I have follow the steps in this question: How to access a shared folder in VirtualBox? but doesn't work.
I have also follow this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YxL414FRccQ but doesn't work either.
This is what I have done:
- With the guest OS closed, I go to the VirtualBox GUI, select config/shared folders
- I choose the path, and I give it a name, I also click automount
- I start the VM, according to both articles, I should have the shared folder, in the Media folder, but it doesn't:
- If I list the
/etc/groupI see a
vboxusersbut not a
vboxsfwhich is the one I should add my user to use the shared folder
Maybe there's a new procedure?
