Installing Sun VirtualBox guest additions for Ubuntu

I found that Ubuntu 9.04 works better in Sun’s VirtualBox – the cursor was way off in Microsoft’s Virtual PC - the only problems were the screen resolution and the annoying bit with capturing the mouse and having to use the scape key. That is until I found that Sun provides guest additions for Ubuntu, see this post here on how to install.


  1. hello this doesnt work for ubuntu 9.10 it says "found unsupported x86 version.."
    and nothing happens after that.

  2. See if the solution suggested here works:

    "Run the "" located in the mounted Guest Additions image."
