• Virtualbox: vboxusers does not exist


    Guys, still struggling with virtualbox here.

    I did a new and clean install following @hector tutorial. However when I run (as root):

    # gpasswd -a $ase11 vboxusers
    

    I get:

    gpasswd: user 'vboxusers' does not exist
    
  • Solved. Created the group myself and added the user.

    Hi!
    Correct, the commands bellow are needed since they simplify VMs usage. I must say i do it on both real and virtual machines.

    sudo gpasswd -a $USER vboxusers
    sudo gpasswd -a $USER vboxsf

  • yeah thank you. Still I have a huge problem with USB enabling, not able to fix it despite having read tons of solutions on the web.
    Also, this is just FYI, VM with Xubuntu and Mint are working much better than Antergos, I do not have that stupid blank screen of the other thread.

    The commands above in your real pc will fix it for you. (or should at least)

  • They do not. Well, shared folders works, USB…no way. And

    groups
    

    returns:

    wheel scanner users vboxusers
    
    

    So I am in.

  • I think the problem is related to Antergos Host, because USB does not work with either Mint, Xubuntu and Antergos virtual machines.
