SOLVED - LDME in VB - installing guest additions

Postby wangsuda on Sun Apr 03, 2011 11:58 pm

While this is my first shot at mint, I've been using Linux systems for four years. However, I have never run one virtually in order to test it out. Right now, I am running Ubuntu with LDME installed virtually (VirtualBox 4.04). I must say, after updating via terminal, everything works great! But I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to install guest additions! Is there a "how-to" somewhere, or a set of codes I can enter? Personally, I love LMDA and am considering a clean install on my machine. But I want to finish testing first, and to do that, I need to install guest additions. Any and all help is appreciated and I thank you in advance!

Thank you. Now if I can figure out those instructions, I'll be set. I lose it when the instructions call for
Change to the directory where your CD-ROM drive is mounted and execute as root:
