guest additions iso image for VirtualBox
  20 reviews

VirtualBox is a free x86 virtualization solution allowing a wide range of x86 operating systems such as Windows, DOS, BSD or Linux to run on a Linux system.

This package provides an iso image which contains the guest additions for Linux, Solaris and Windows to be installed on the host system. The guest systems then can mount the iso and install the guest additions from there.

When you want to share clipboard, drag'n'drop and share folders to your guest computer from host computer, it requires you to install an image (ISO) file. That's the ISO file. Download this, use when VirtualBox asks you for guest addition ISO, install on guest side, and then functions just work. That's an optional package but I'd strongly recommend it, you'll never know when you gonna need it.

Mint 18.3, problem with installing solved. You must use Nvidia drivers for Linux, instead of open source. This package seems to be the only way, to run guest OS (Windows 10) at 1920x1080. So before installing - check which driver is installed and in use.

Mint 16 works out of the box with it's own version installed, this breaks it. Don't install.

Check /usr/share/virtualbox, there should be VBoxGuestAdditions.iso already, no need to install this package.

DO NOT USE: This extension destroyed three VMs. Find it some where else.

I agree with the last poster. I love VirtualBox, but this version of the guest additions caused VirtualBox to be uninstalled. Had to download from Oracle's site. Don't waste your time downloading this.

I love Virutalbox-4.3 but not this virtualbox-guest-additions-iso - I need the additions iso for the 4.3 but if I install the iso the 4.3 is removed. HELLO WHO DECIDED TO BE STUPID!!! I manually found the iso on

Install this on the virtual OS. From Virtual Box menu "Devices" within virtual OS. Choose "Insert Guest Additions CD Image". This will auto-resize the virtual OS window, which is very helpful, and allow use of a shared folder which is also very helpful!
