    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms
    This worked for me as well - no other config needed - thanks so much!

    If you had installed VirtualBox FROM THE WEBSITE DEB FILE:

    Simply run the website-downloaded deb file, and select "reinstall," which will be fixing the issue in addition to keeping all of the virtual machines that you already had before.


    Source: I just had this problem.

    After upgrade of Linux kernel problem returned, and was solved by the same commands, except that linux headers version was updated to match new kernel version:

    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-3.5.0-18-generic
    sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-dkms
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

    You should restart after executung this commands.

    Easier fix:


    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    sudo apt-get remove virtualbox-dkms
    sudo apt-get install virtualbox-dkms

    Talking Re: VBox: Kernel driver not installed (rc=-1908) (SOLVED)

    Make sure your kernel headers is installed. Use synaptic and search linux-kernel-headers-generic (-pae) It worked like a charm. With the error the installation cannot find the script file for the kernel. Easy peasy.

    Hello,

    I had the same problem and yesterday i solve following this topic. I worked fine in VirtualBox and all works fine. Thanks!

    However, today, when i restart my pc (asus k55v) unity bar disappeared. I'm newbie in Ubuntu so i can't do nothing without unity bar and top bar.

    I'm writing this reply from another pc

    I try reinstall VBox in terminal, with "Ctrl+Alt+t" and using code* in this topic, restart but didn't work.

    I searched on google but without success.
    Someone can help me?

    Hi jds340, in Ubuntu 12.10 the solution appears to be slightly different. Have you tried it that way?
