My Setup is as follows -
Host: Ubuntu Server 14.04 Guest: Lubuntu Desktop 15.10
I have shared dirs on host to guest with automount option, and the directories show up in Guest OS's just fine - /media/sf_sharename
Also, the user of guest is added to vboxsf group.
The problem is that all the shared dir and its contents are owned by root. I have tried chown -R, but it finishes without reporting error wihtin guest but the ownership does not change.
I have another setup where guest is ubuntu desktop 15.10, and I did not face this problem there.
I need rw access on those shared dirs. How to fix this?
