Virtualbox VBOX How To Install Guest-Utils/GuestUtils so drag and drop and clipboard works Ubuntu Mint Debian Linux

Just install these packages and restart the VM:

1.) Enable guest-utils on the host side:

sudo apt install virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11
 

2.) Enable guest editions on the VM side

This must be done for each VM that you want to have the guest additons for accelerated GPU performance and for drag and drop/clipboard sharing

First insert the Guest Addtions CD image

The installer should popup,  complete the installation as directed by the installer.

 

Enable Shared Clipboard and Drag and Drop

 

 

Remember that you have to restart the VM for this to actually work.
