In that case you will need to install the Guest Additions in Arch. Quick google in VBox docs should point you in the right direction.
It's 1 pm in China Thanks!Your way works.ewaller wrote:It is getting late here, so maybe it is just me... but I cannot figure out what you are trying to do.Is the Archlinux you are working with in a virtual machine? If so, you want to install virtualbox-archlinux-modules.
Are you sure that you ran those commands in the guest OS (and not on the host OS) ? After all, they're called guest additions. Because it's easy to misinterpret if both the guest and the host are Arch Linux.Try adding more video RAM. The default is 12 MB.If it's GNOME or KDE, you probably need around 128 MB.
Hi and welcome to the forum.https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Vi … nux_guestsIn the VM (VM = virtual machine), run:# pacman -S virtualbox-archlinux-additions
# nano /etc/modules-load.d/vbox.conf
<add the modules according to the wiki and save with Ctrl+X>
# rebootThen add it from Devices or from Settings.
Um, virtualbox-guest-additions, yes...A quick "pacman -Qi virtualbox" indicates that it's Qt-based. Assuming you didn't install virtualbox-bin from the AUR (which is the Oracle-compiled version, only kept for comparison against the one in the official repos), it should follow whatever theme you chose.
