Ok :) . In the virtual CD of additions there are several files. The file which I ran was VBoxLinuxAdditions.run. Maybe should I have run another file or that's the one?

If you open from the menu the command to install the guest additions, you get asked, if you want to execute it. Affirm this. You do not have to open the virtual CD.
