[Solved] Changing Mint view in VirtualBox

Postby dnmint on Sun Jun 22, 2008 8:30 am

I have installed Mint in VBox ( XP host & Mint Elyssa guest). I am having a good experience of using & more so LEARNING Linux.
When I Power on VBox I used to get VBox window ( with Machine Devices etc in top Left corner). Mint used to be a Window within this.
As part of my experimenting I opted for Seamless loading once. Now Mint is loaded but I cant get into VBox background as before.
I saw something like Host+ A, Host + S, Host + L etc options before. I do not know how to activate them
Any advice as to how I can get back. It would help me to use the devices menu for 'Shared Files' etc options
Thanks in advance :?: :?:[b][/b]

I think you should ask at the Virtualbox site
There is somewhere, possibly in this forum, a description for how to mix XP or Vista seamlessly with Linux which seems to be what you have done. I don't find it now though

I don't use wine - never even installed it so perhaps I should shut up :)
