    Guest Addition install problam

    Hello everyone!


    I watch a few tutorials on installing Guest Additions on YouTube, and on every one of them (after click Device >>Insert Guest Additions CD image) an autorun pop up on the screen while I get only option to open the file and watch the documents , even after click the execute file nothing happens.
    Why is this happen and how can I solve it?

    Please step back and start from the beginning. You've jumped in about 5 steps and we can't guess where you think you are.
    Is this something related to virtualization?
    What is the hostOS?
    What is the guestOS?
    Which hypervisor is being used?

    Or is it something else?

    I'm sorry to say, but we cannot read your mind. We need facts. Tell use the story.

    The only guest-additions I know of is that for VirtualBox so I have therefore now moved this thread to Virtualisation.

    You can do it the hard way or install from the repositories:
    Code:
    sudo apt install virtualbox-guest-dkms

    Why what is happening?
    Installing from the Virtualbox's own ISO needs to be done as described in the link. The ISO mounted when "insert" is issued contains software for different OSes. You shouldn't expect it run the installer automatically and you really don't want such behavior.
