Installing VirtualBox Guest Additions on Ubuntu Linux Guest

by linux

If you want to install VirtualBox Guest Additions on Ubuntu Linux Guest here what you need to do.

First go to VirtualBox -> Devices and click on Insert Guest Additions CD Image.

From the terminal look where the image is mounted. Usually it is under:

/mnt/username/VBOXADDITIONS_5.0.18_10667

where username is your username used to login to your machine.

Then we need to install some packages:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)

Then we run the script from the CD image:

cd /mnt/username/VBOXADDITIONS_5.0.18_10667
sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run

You need to run this script after every kernel update.
