    Guest additions included in VB program. Not needed to download them separately. Once you install your Virtual Ubuntu , click the "Devices" and last in list you will see "Guest Additions" . Click and installation will begin. You have to reboot (your Virtual OS) for the changes to take effect (and you will have full-screen VB)

    Better to install the same architecture as host , but this is not a requirement.

    Thanks

    Most of resize methods , configured with Host+F (host=right Ctrl). Alternatively you can click on "View" and see what allows you to select.

    complete cure for ubuntu 13.04 and virtualbox 4.2.12
    graphic/performa fix for ubuntu os
    part of this solution applies where aero / transperancy is used including d3d games




    recommended graphic memory or virtual ram for aero base operating system is 256mbs
    min.ram -768mb for 13.04




    1.enable 3d support invirtual box 3d settings
    2.terminal commands..
    .../usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p *(Not software rendered:no, unity 3d support:No)*
    ...uname -r
    ...sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    ...sudo apt-get autoremove
    ...sudo apt-get install build-essential
    >>now insert vitualbox guest iso from devices and to install manually follow
    ...cd /media
    ...ls
    ...cd username
    ...ls
    ...cd VBOX*
    ...ls
    ...sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
    ...sudo gedit /etc/modules
    >>add "vboxvideo" *in the next line after lp means loop>lp>vboxvideo like this* click save and file quit
    3.restart the machine
    4.now open the terminal to checkunity 3d is enabled or not
    .../usr/lib/nux/unity_support_test -p
    5.after this shut down the machine lets raise the virtual ram
    6.close virtual machine and virtual box
    7.follow this path C:\Users\Username\VirtualBox VMs\ubuntu 13.04
    8.now look for ".vbox" extension file and open it with temporarily with wordpad
    9.look for the following lines and replace these in following manner
    ...Display VRAMSize="128" monitorCount="1" accelerate3D="true" accelerate2DVideo="false"/>
    >><Display VRAMSize="256" monitorCount="1" accelerate3D="true" accelerate2DVideo="false"/>
    10.now u can set 256 mb virtual memory for this operating system.
    11.any os can be provided with desired vram this way
