How to use full screen mode in Virtual Box for Linux OS?

First thing, get your Linux OS install in Virtual Box as usual. Am going to use Ubuntu/Debian as example here.

Then, boot up the OS and open the Terminal window :

1. Login using Superuser using

    sudo su

2. Update the aptitude source

    apt-get update

3. Install the packages required :

    a. apt-get install build-essential

    b. apt-get install linux-headers-generic

Once completed, click on the VBox “Devices” menu and “Install Guest Additions”.


Then, go back to the Terminal window :

4. Make a new mount folder,

   mkdir /mnt/vbox

5. Mount the Guest Additions to the newly created folder,

   mount /dev/scd0 /mnt/vbox

6. Install the Guest Additions, depends on either you’re using x86 or 64bit workstation,

cd /mnt/vbox 



7. Reboot and you shall able use full screen as you like.
