I have a VM of PCLOS in Virtualbox and I have installed the guest OS tools in that VM from Synaptic. I cannot find anything to tell me how to get them to work. I prefer to keep the OS clean so I am going to stick with the tools in the repo rather than download and use the guest tools from Virtualbox. Any help about where to look and what to look for will be appreciated.
From the main PC menu, More Applications --> Emulators --> Get Oracle VM VirtualBox - VirtualBox Installer
. This will download and install the latest VirtualBox
version and the proper Guest Additions
to go with it.
After creating a new, or starting an existing VM, from the menu bar of the running VM, choose Devices --> Install Guest Additions...
When you get the notification with options, choose Open in File Manager
. Right click in the window background and choose Root Menu --> Open as root
. Give the root password, in the Run as root
window, and click OK
. Click on the VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
icon, in the new window.
A terminal window will open with a warning, and you will be asked if you want to continue anyway, with options yes and no. Type yes
and press the Enter key
on your keyboard. Wait for the process to complete, press Enter
to close the terminal window, close the two file manager windows, then reboot the VM.
Again, from the running VM, choose Help --> Contents
to reveal a detailed extensive User Manual, explaining how to do most anything you wish to do with your VM.
