I know its a common issue, but I couldn't find a solution online.
I downloaded the ISO (32 bit) from here: http://lubuntu.net/blog/lubuntu-1610-yakkety-yak-released
I mounted the guest additional from input -> insert guest additions CD image.
Then I started
I enabled shared clipboard and drag and drop, neither work Nor does the shared folder I tried to mount.
I figure the problem is something with the guest additions - but every time I try to install again, it says that its updated.
When I try running
modprobe vboxsf , as I have seen suggested, I get
ERROR: could not insert 'vboxsf': Operation not permitted.
sudo gpasswd -a username vboxsf to add myself to the user group, it said it worked but then again, the above operations still aren't working.
modinfo vboxsf output:
