Trouble with opening VboxAdditions file for Guest Additions


#1

Hello everyone,

I am stuck on installing the guest additions part of the introductory section of the course.

  • I am using a Win10 PC, with 8gb RAM.*

When I try to open the VBOXADDITIONS_4.3.26_98988/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run file the mouse pad pops up showing that “The document was not UTF-8 valid” " Please select an encoding below"

I was like okay cool let me try the other way, by entering the file path through the Terminal Emulator. This method was aborted because it stated I do not have admin privileges?

I am completely lost as to what to do next and will continue to search google to hopefully find an answer, but wanted to know if anyone here knew what why the problem could be happening.

Can you try running sudo in front?
like this

sudo /media/kamari/VBox_GAs_6.0.8/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
