Sort directories befores files in Gtk file dialogs

Re: VirtualBox Guest Additions

OK, I give up. I don't know what I did different on this last try, but Guest Additions finally installed.

Re: VirtualBox Guest Additions

I have tried versions 5.1, 5.0.30, & 5.0.28 from both Oracle download and from Debian download with matching guest additions.

Something about "systemctl" seems to be broken.

Hope that clears it up

Thus, I cannot proceed with the install. My video board is an ASUS GeForce GTX 750Ti. When I installed Mint 17, I also had a problem with ...
