Making Game: Cant run Guest Additions on linux mint 18.1 Virtual box

Original Source Link

Tried adding empty optical drives, and manually adding the iso from the devices menu. Used a few terminal prompts
bash ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run no such file or directory

Trying to build an arcade machine with my little brother, and shrink an image. Very desperate, would compensate for live help if anyone can help

Linux HowTo: VirtualBox “Auto resize guest display” greyed out

Original Source Link

I have a virtual machine on VirtualBox (version 6.0.6), guest system CentOS 7, host system Windows 10. Extension pack is installed. Graphics controller is VBoxVGA.

I followed the steps here for installation of VirtualBox Guest Additions (no errors displayed) and reboot.

On CentOS:

> systemctl -t service | grep vbox
VBoxadd-service.service   loaded active running VBoxadd-service.service

(that means guest additions are running). “Auto resize guest display” is still greyed out.

About current kernel:

> sudo uname -r
3.10.0-957.12.2.e17.x86_64

Note that on the same host, Fedora 30 virtual machine and Ubuntu 14.04 virtual machine “auto resize” properly works.

Update: still happens with VirtualBox 6.0.8 (updated Extension Pack and Guest Additions too).

Any hint? What I’m missing?

I had a similar issue (didn’t read all of your references though, short on time) and for me it worked with 3D acceleration enabled and grafics controller VBoxSVGA. Noting else changed.

I am on version 6.0.12 on the host and the additions are 6.0.14.

My solution was to set the display to VBoxVGA (VirtualBox 6.1.6 r137129 Qt5.9.5, Guest additions installed, Debian 10)

Linux HowTo: Why can’t install Guest Additions on VirtualBox for Debian OS?

Original Source Link

VirtualBox version

6.1

virtualbox version pic

Installed Debian 10.4.0 on it.

From VirtualBox menu select Devices -> Insert Guest Additions CD Image. CD automatically ran but unable to locate the program. Why?

guest additions folder in virtualbox pic

will run application on debian pic

cause an alert can’t install the program pic


Addition

After ran this by root user, it can be installed

sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

But there is an another problem, restart OS it shown:

VBoxClient: The parent session seems to be non-X11. Exiting...

select default GNOME on the login page

VBoxClient alert

If resize the window to full screen, it can’t change size at all.

Answering to your update:

VBoxClient: The parent session seems to be non-X11. Exiting...

Following the suggestion in this Reddit post, it seems a bug in VirtualBox Guest Additions 6.1.

The last Guest Additions from 6.0 (http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.0.22/VBoxGuestAdditions_6.0.22.iso) should not be affected.

I can confirm the old Additions work on my setup:

  • Windows 10 host
  • Debian Stretch guest
  • VirtualBox 6.1.8
  • Guest Additions 6.0.22

Making Game: Acces virtualbox guest OS from another computer in the LAN

Original Source Link

So I’ve got a host (lets called it host 1) virtualbox setup with Windows Server 2016. Ethernet 1 is set to NAT Ethernet 2 is set to “host-only network” (192.168.0.1/24) Static IP is configured in Windows as 192.168.0.10 (Settings for Ethernet 2 can be seen here) Ethernet 2 is not part of the “protected network connections.
Settings for ethernet 2 can be be found here

I’ve got the guest os to act as DNS as well FYI.

I can ping the guest OS from the host OS. Host OS IP: 192.168.1.4 (gateway 192.168.1.1) So that seems to be working as intended.

Now what I like to do is to be able to access the the guest OS on “host 1” another host with a guest OS in my LAN (lets call it host 2). “host 2” is located on the same network as host 1. IP: 192.168.1.17. However I’m not able to ping the guest OS on host 1 from host 2, I guess that’s where I should start before getting the connection to work.

I would like some advice how do proceed with this.

Linux HowTo: Can’t install Guest Additions – (Missing ‘Devices’ Menu on host)

Original Source Link

The top menu is wrong (Virtualbox 4.2, Windows 7)

Shows: File, Machine, Help

Expected: File, Machine, Devices, Help

enter image description here

When in seamless/fullscreen mode, you can hit Host + Home key to popup the toolbar dialog menu.

I know this post is old/may not have been a hotkey at the time, but figured for people visiting trying to find this (as it’s high up on search results) it may be helpful!

Please update to the latest version of VirtualBox, version 4.3.26. The Devices menu will normally only be shown at the top of the virtual machine window when a virtual machine is running. You can also also use the keyboard shortcut to insert the Guest Additions CD. By default, to do this, hold down the Ctrl key on the right right of your keyboard, and hit the “D” key.

I faced the same issue with MAC host and Ubuntu guest. Finally, I found this:

  1. Go to preferences.

  2. Select “input”->”Virtual Machine”
    Add shortcut key to “Menu Bar Settings” (I added HOST key + M)

Screenshot

  1. Click “OK” and go to running virtual machine and press the key combination for Menu Bar Settings. Then you can see menu on top of the screen

Screenshot2

I had to hit HOST + C to disable stretched display (Right-Control C) and the Devices menu was shown on the Guest window NOT on the Virtual Box window.

Had same issue. Discovered that right clicking empty space in the Menu panel will cause a subset bar to show up. Clicking on “Devices” will add it to the main menu bar. Don’t know why it’s hidden in the first place- wasn’t in earlier versions of VM. Hope it works for you.

I faced this issue just now. Following are my findings:-

Issue: ” Devices menu not visible”

Resolution:

There is actually an option as to what you want to see in the menu for a machine.
Make sure ‘Devices’ is selected here.

enter image description here

  1. go to settings> user interface
  2. click the option device
  3. click ok.
  4. to start the machine, click start.
  5. in the OS that you installed, press host+c

    you will see the option above will appear.

In the VM respective machine (Ubuntu 20.04 LTS) General / User Interface must be selected Device like others tabs (File Machine etc Help) and in each one select what you want (Insert Guest Additions CD Image) The you will see the CD and from there install the additional modules with:
sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

The Menu Settings can be accessed in the ‘Settings’ (R-Click the VM) then ‘User interface’ (Tab)
Make sure each of the menus are ticked and are slightly greyed and OK and then start/restart VM.
This applies to the MAC Version but something similar should work for the other platforms.
