I had a VM with Ubuntu 21.04, I deleted it and I have made a new VM with OS Ubuntu 22.04.
On the previous OS, I was used to enable:
- Guest additions CD: from menu devices>insert guest additions CD -> this enabled screen enlargment with right CTRL+F
- shared clipboard: devices>shared clipboards>bidirectional -> this enabled copy&paste from my host to my virtual machine and vice versa.
- shared folder: devices>shared folders>settings> various choices -> this enabled file transfer from my host to my virtual machine and vice versa.
I did the same on the new VM with Ubuntu 22.04, rebooted various times from OS menu, but the changes do not take place:
right CTRL+F changes only the VM window size, but does not enlarge the screen.
Copy&paste does not work from my host to my virtual machine (CTRL + SHIFT + C , CTRL + SHIFT + V) and vice versa (CTRL + C , CTRL + V).
the shared folder I configured is not present at path
What could be the cause of it? How can I solve it?
The Guest additions CD / screen size point is SOLVED.
I solved by setting the hosted OS screen resolution to the desired size from OS menu settings>displays>resolution>(put the same resolution of my host OS).
Though, have created a new VM and installed ubuntu 21.04 and did the same configuration operations that I did for Ubuntu 22.04.
For Ubuntu 21.04, it is not necessary to set the size resolution from the OS settings menu to make the screen enlargement via right CTRL+F work.
Furthermore, in Ubuntu 21.04 it is sufficient to run the operations that I have described upwards to make the shared folder and shared clipbord work.
I also deleted the VM with Ubuntu 22.04, generated a new VM, installed the 22.04 OS again, and still I get the same problems.
Maybe something is wrong with my Ubuntu 22.04 iso:
