I am trying to use AntiX as a guest in Virtualbox, MX19 is the host. Virtualbox version is 5.2
I am having trouble installing the guest additions in AntiX so I can use full screen and copy/paste.
The usual method I use with other distros is not working, so I am stuck. I can’t seem to mount the guest addition .iso
so I tried using the command line, installing make, gcc, and linux-headers-$(uname-r) first and manually downloading and installing
the VBoxLinuxAdditions.run file from the Virtualbox website, and that did not work.
I don’t know what just happened, but I removed the virtualbox vm completely and reinstalled. When I rebooted AntiX I now have full-screen without installing the
guest additions. How odd.
Edit: I was able to manually mount the .iso for the virtualbox guest additions and run the .run file with ./, after rebooting I still have fullscreen but no
copy/paste and no access to the shared mounted folder under /media/sf_Download

Those functions are settings under “Devices” in VBox.
