[VM Image] Legato 16.07 for Windows


#1

Hi-

Why doesn’t the Virtual Box image for Legato 16.07 running on Windows support Shared Clipboard between Host OS and Guest OS? I can’t copy/paste between Windows 10 and Ubuntu 16.04.1.

In addition, I can’t set up share folder between Windows and Linux.

Please advise.

Thanks!

VirtualBox is an oracle product, and there are tutorials on how to configure a Shared Clipboard for them like this one:

To set up shared folders you need to set up samba or some other file sharing between Windows and Linux, though I think Virtual Box has it’s own mechanism to do it.
