Enable Virtualbox Guest Additions on Debian
May 11, 2018

Steps that I followed to install VirtualBox Guest Additions on latest Debian

  1. $ sudo apt install build-essential module-assistant dkms
  2. $ sudo reboot
  3. Insert VirtualBoxGestAdditions.iso
  4. $ cd /media/cdrom0
  5. $ sudo sh VBoxLinuxAdditions.sh
  6. $ sudo reboot
  7. $ sudo usermod -a -G vboxsf <your-user>

If you follow these steps and enable automatic mounting on shared folders option every reboot you’ll have your folders mounted and accessible.

If you update your VirtualBox to a newer version just repeat the steps 3 to 6.
