LXDE + VirtualBox Guest Additions

Post by damNageHack » 19. Sep 2010, 07:31

LXDE will not mount the VBox Guest Additions iso automatically if you attach it via the menu.

Code: Select all

mount /dev/sr0 /mnt/cdrom && cd /mnt/cdrom || echo Please attach Guest Additions first.&& exit 1
slapt-get -u && slapt-get -i kernel-source
TMPDIR=/dev/shm ./VBoxLinuxAdditions-`uname -m | sed -e s,i6,x, -e s,x86_,amd,`.run
This is the oppinion of the author, it does not force you to share and is signed automatically.

Yep, LXDE does not have the automount feature (IMHO it sucks anyway :mrgreen:), but you can mount with PCManFM.
