I mean this error appears randomly as well.

Code: Select all

Unable to save bookmarks in /home/ghostslayer989/.local/share/user-places.xbel. Reported error was: Existing file /home/ghostslayer989/.local/share/user-places.xbel is not writable. This error message will only be shown once. The cause of the error needs to be fixed as quickly as possible, which is most likely a full hard drive.

The end of the error message points you to the free space on your drive - more precisely to the partition, where your home resides. How much space is free?

Besides that: You missed to give any technical details: Host: Version of Mint (or what you have) and desktop environment, version of VB?
Guest: Again: Which OS / distro / version / desktop?

So space is not the problem, but wrong ownership of the file; the effect is the same as missing space. As it appears likely, that the same fault exists also on other places, do a more extensive investigation (in the host):
Mark the following command and press ctrl-c

Code: Select all

find $HOME ! -user $USER -type f
open a terminal and press ctrl-shift-V Mark the complete result inclusive the command with the mouse and press ctrl-shift-C
In the forum click the Code-button above the text box, than press ctrl-v.

Strange output. What have kernels to do inside of your home?

To correct the ownership problems:
Mark the following command completely and make sure, that you do not miss any sign, than press ctrl-c

Code: Select all

find /home/$SUDO_USER ! -user $SUDO_USER -exec chown $SUDO_USER:$SUDO_USER '{}' \;
Open a terminal and enter

Code: Select all

sudo -i
and press the Enter-key; you get prompted for your password, enter it.
Now still in the same terminal press ctrl-shift-V
Run this command and wait until it has finished. It does not produce a readable output.
Press twice ctrl-d
Immediately log off and back into your account.

It does what I wrote - but only, if you did it exactly as I described. You can check, if this has worked by repeating this command. It should now produce an empty output, otherwise you did something wrong.

You did not follow my advice precisely. Nobody can do it in a forum for you, you must do it yourself. The advice has been hundreds of times been tested and successfully executed by other users.

Create in the host a fresh new user account, create inside of the nw account a new VM and test.

You still have not told, which OS you are running as guest.
