    boot up the virtual machine, when that is done. go to the devices dropdown menu and click 'install Vbox guest additions'

    Re: Where to find VBoxGuestAdditions.iso

    I had this (embarrassing) problem too. I think it has to with the VBox version in the repos. I don't think it comes with LinuxAdditions. I uninstalled it and got the deb from the VirtualBox site and all was cool.

    It "suddenly" appeared in /usr/share/virtualbox/

    I mounted the iso in the guest, copied the LinuxAdditions run file to /home and ran it with sudo sh./

    All is now well in my virtual world - I can even get a windowless VM! yay.

    Hi!

    I also have some similar problem. I mounted the ISO file and run the .RUN file, but I always get a message that I do not have the administrator privileges (thou I have) to install it. Somebody knows why?
    Please help. Thank you.

    Use sudo :

    sudo sh xxx.Run

    Re: Where to find VBoxGuestAdditions.iso

    To elaborate on what insane_alien said, if you have installed the version from VirtualBox's website (HIGHLY recommended), start the XP guest and click devices>Install GuestAdditions

    Now here's the part that's not as intuitive. When you click it, for some people, nothing appears to have happened. But it actually just mounted the iso for you. Just go to My Computer in the XP guest and 'Explore' the Rom to find an executable for guestAdditions.

    Hey, I'm running kubuntu under virtualbox and am trying to adjust the resolution since 800x600 is ridiculously small. I've mounted the vboxadditions.iso and run the .run file and get the following:

    I assume the kernel I have is not yet supported, or am I missing any libraries or anything? I don't know what to make of that log.
