[HowTo]Solve "usermod: group 'vboxusers' does not exist" error

Post by cpedretti »

After installing LMDE5 in virtual machine under VirtualBox 6.1.32, I got this error.

I share the solution with you, open an terminal in your vm and enter following line:

Code: Select all

sudo groupadd vboxusers && sudo usermod -aG vboxusers my_userName
Then reboot.
