How to add a shared folder for Ubuntu on a macOS High Sierra Host?

Here’s how to share files between a Ubuntu virtual machine and macOS High Sierra on VirtualBox.

  • Download, set up your VM. See above.

  • Open settings for the VM. Click the “Shared Folders” tab. Add your folder and select Yes for “Auto-mount”

  • Run the VM

  • While the VM is running, in the Mac menu bar go to Devices > Optical Drives > Choose disk image…

  • Select the VirtualBox Guest Additions image, for me this is located at /Applications/VirtualBox.app/Contents/MacOS/VBoxGuestAdditions.iso. Once the Choose disk image… option was selected, you were probably shown a file picker. Press Command-Shift-G and then type in that file to choose the VBoxGuesAdditions.iso.

  • You might need to force mount/unmount. You’ll be prompted by VirtualBox if this is necessary.

  • Restart your VM.

  • Run the following command to install prerequisites for the Mac VirtualBox Guest Additions: sudo apt-get -y install gcc make linux-headers-$(uname -r)

  • Then run sudo /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run to install the Guest Additions

  • Restart your VM again.

  • Run sudo usermod -aG vboxsf USERNAME where USERNAME is your guest OS username. This will let your user access the shared folder.

  • Your folder will be at /media/sf_FOLDER_NAME, so cd /media/sf_FOLDER_NAME
