You can paste things in terminal by right-clicking and choosing Paste. I hope this helps. :smiley:

that didnt work too, like i can copypaste in the linux os itself but not from host

Did you mount the guest additions drive? Once u do u can turn drag n drop and copy n paste from any window.

I mount the guest additions drive but I cant


I had the same problem. I did the Guest Additions, as was mentioned in one of the first step after installing OS in Virtual Box, but I couldn’t copy paste this sudo… command.
I just typed it in by hand (another tricky part - when you are asked for a password it won’t be visible while typing, just type and click enter), did all the next steps and now it’s working:-)
