[ubuntu] holy crap I cannot share this stinking folder

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I've got virtualbox installed on my Ubuntu 11.10 host. I've got ubuntu 10.04 as a guest. All is well. Now I want to share a folder from the host to the guest. BLARGH! There is nothing that I cannot overly-complicate. I'm in the user group. I can see the shared folder, but I get this: Code: You do not have the permissions necessary to view the contents of "sf_folder". Grr... will this work? Code: sudo pretty please share sf_folder (Hardware)
