I am running Oracle VM VirtualBox 5.1.8 with Ubuntu Mate 16.04.1 as the host system. I am running Ubuntu Mate 15.10 as the guest system. I have the shared folder set up on the host as 'UbuntuSharedFolder' , that comes across the guest side as ''sf_UbuntuSharedFolder'.
See screen shot:
It gets automatically mounted every time I start the Guest OS, but it says it doesn't, have the permissions to open it when i try to access from the guest OS. In the host if I try to run this on the host OS:
user@user-A55MLV:~$ sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers $USER
[sudo] password for user:
It accepts it without errors but it doesn't solve the problem, so it may not run right.
What do I do that the shared folder is accessible from the guest OS?
