This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.


FYI, I've created a bunch of indicators (including indicator-virtual-box) located at https://launchpad.net/~thebernmeister.


Michael Otto didn't package indicator-virtualbox for Ubuntu 11.10 Oneiric. I tried adding the PPA for Natty and it unfortunately didn't work. However, I tried downloading the .Deb binary from here (on Launchpad). You can do the following in the terminal:

For 32-bit:

wget https://launchpad.net/~michael-astrapi/+archive/ppa/+build/2122538/+files/indicator-virtualbox_1.1.1%7Eastrapi%7Enatty1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i './indicator-virtualbox_1.1.1~astrapi~natty1_i386.deb'

For 64-bit:

wget https://launchpad.net/~michael-astrapi/+archive/ppa/+build/2122537/+files/indicator-virtualbox_1.1.1%7Eastrapi%7Enatty1_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i './indicator-virtualbox_1.1.1~astrapi~natty1_amd64.deb'

Remember, you're doing this at your own risk. I'm simply confirming that it worked for me.


I think any indicator that works in 11.04 should work in 11.10.
