Install VirtualBox Guest Aditions on CentOS 7 Linux Guest

by linux

If you want to be able to move your mouse cursor outside the VirtualBox CentOS Guest window without pressing a key and also automatically scale CentOS Guest window you need to install VirtualBox Guest Aditions on your CentOS Guest.

In order to do that run:

yum install dkms
yum install kernel-devel

Then add the cd from VirtualBox (Devices -> Insert Guest Aditions CD image). If you are using a window manager (like for example Mate) the iso will be mounted in /run/media where we can find the install script:

cd /run/media/root/VBOXADDITIONS_5.0.18_106667/
./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
