Install VirtualBox Guest Additions on openSUSE -

If you're running openSUSE inside a VirtualBox virtual machine, installing the Guest Additions software will help you get the most out of the system. VirtualBox Guest Additions will give the machine more capabilities, such as a shared clipboard with the host system, drag and drop file transfer, and automatic window resizing.

thank you so much for this post!
I’m just now learning how to use VirtualBox and before creating a openSUSE guest OS on it. I had created a Xubuntu guest OS first. Adding the guest additions was just a matter of running sudo ./
I tried doing the same with openSUSE and that was a ‘no go’ :stuck_out_tongue:
I didn’t realize that different OS’s will have different steps in order to add Guest Additions.

Thank you again for clear and straightforward steps! :bowing_man:
