This question already has an answer here:
I can't get Ubuntu (tried both 12.10 and 13.10) to play nice with my VM. Everything looks fine when I log in, but trying to use the dashboard will cause a crash. The crash can be triggered by just about anything but the surest way to reproduce is to attempt to search for anything using the dashboard (top left Unity button).
When this happens, I am presented with a blank desktop:
What I've tried:
I did this once while watching
tail -fand nothing new appeared when the crash occurred.
~/.xsession-errors, rebooting and triggering the crash again, does not recreate the file.
I have installed guest additions on the guest OS
- Host OS: LMDE, basically Debian testing
- Guest OS: Ubuntu 13.10 64bit
- Virtual Machine: 4.3.8 r92456
- VM settings:
NOTE: Don't let the name fool you, I am actually running 13.10, the VM name is just left over from a previous install.
