VirtualBox Guest Additions

This is just a quick note so I don’t forget this link. This is how to quickly and easily install the VirtualBox Guest Additions in an Ubuntu Guest machine running on a Windows Host.

The reason you want to install these is to allow:

  1. Bidirectional Clipboard support
  2. Shared folders
  3. 3D Graphics Acceleration

I’m sure there are other benefits, but none that are pragmatic for me.
