So, all the packages that I installed or files I downloaded are gone by the next session. I also use an Ubuntu virtual, and it doesn't have problems like that. I really like mint, so I want to use it and not Ubuntu. Also, I am using an xfce desktop (to make the virtual lighter)
Perhaps you are running Linux Mint Live. Have you installed Linux Mint in your virtual machine?. Have you removed the virtual Linux Mint Live CD from the CD/DVD drive of the virtual machine?.
