I haven’t used virtualbox for awhile (now on 11.1) and now that I want to use it, I can’t find it. I have a .VirtualBox folder with 2 machines in it, but no app to run them.
A menu search and a krunner search turn up nothing even though I just used yast to install the ose for my kernel. So, I must be doing something wrong. The repo is at version 1.6.2 (or thereabouts) and virtualbox.org is at 2.2.2 (or thereabouts.)
Oddly, I find no helpful documentation. Should I install from virtualbox.org? Why did it disappear?
You can set up Shared folders - one in /home and one in the VM it involves a special VB version of the mount command, and setup via the VB settings for the VM. I can’t remember the exact steps, sorry haven’t done it for a while, but it is documented in the rather good manual available from Sun’s VirtualBox website. It should work for OSE as well. You then place the photos in the /home folder and they should be automatically made available to the VM’s shared folder.
I haven’t used it since I got USB support working, but that doesn’t help you because the OSE version doesn’t support USB in the VM.
Thanks. I have to download that user manual again from virtualbox.org since it seems to have disappeared with the vbox install. Still can’t figure out where that went since I have a folder for virtualbox and 2 vm’s.
I am gui oriented by nature. So, I find the screenshots of the folder sharing very useful. Now, I just have to do it!
