Parrot OS v5.0 – How to manually install VirtualBox guest additions

Environment:

Variant 1 => using official online parrot repo

sudo su -

# update packages list and upgrade packages
apt update && apt upgrade -y

# install virtualbox guest additions from the Parrot repo
apt install virtualbox-guest-utils

# install the package
apt install virtualbox-guest-x11

# reboot the system
reboot

Now the resize should work.

Variant 2 => using VBox Guest addition image

Now we will install Vbox guest addition using VBox option.

  1. Go to to the virtualbox menu “Devices” and then click on Insert Guest additions CD image
(Devices > Insert Guest Additions CD image..)

2. Parrot optionally may will notify you that the CD was inserted.

3. Then open the terminal and go to the Guest Addition ISO folder. In my case the path include my login name

cd /media/palo/VBox_GAs_6.1.28/

Folder contains
