I’m writing this post from within Firefox running Ubuntu 9.10 running inside Virtual Box 3.0.12.<br />n<br />nThe resolution on the guest OS is now set to 1280×956 when I have the VBox window maximized in Windows. If I have it less than maximized, the guest OS display automatically resizes to 1152×864. There is an auto-resize selection in the VBox ‘Machine’ menu that allows for this. Nice!<br />n<br />nAnd, there is a ‘seamless’ mode, which makes the windows fit right into the Windows desktop. Selectcing the Disply utility in Ubuntu shows the disply now at 1280×1024, which is what my Windows display is set at. Double sweet!<br />n<br />nOnly drawback I’m seeing with this is that the linux panel replaces the Windows Start menu panel, which I usually keep across the top of the window, with the auto-hide feature turned on. But, no big deal.<br />n<br />nNext, I started to play with the shared folder. Not so easy. The VBox help says to use a specific command line command, but I’ve never had good luck mounting filesystems. Here is what I tried:<br />n<em>mount -t vboxsf sharename /mnt/fs</em><br />nDidn’t work. Threw this error:<br />n<em>/sbin/mount.vboxsf: mounting failed with the error: No such file or directory</em><br />n<br />nLooking all over for a GUI method to mount the shared folder, I couldn’t find one. I’ll try again another time.<br />n<br />nBut suggestions are welcome!<br />n<br />nUpdate (20 Nov): Quick googling for the mount command in VBox and Ubuntu provided <a href=”http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewforum.php?f=6″ title=”virtual box forum”>this forum</a> (<a href=”http://forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?t=3201″ title=”forum post about shared folders”>and post</a>), pretty much what I need, AFAICT. I’ll look into it more tonight.
