Share File between Mac Os X and Ubuntu

You’ll need the latest version of VirtualBox with Guest Additions installed in Ubuntu.

  • With the Virtual Machine powered off and selected in VirtualBox, go to:
    Machine > Settings… > Shared Folders
  • For “Folder Path”, click the icon to browse for the folder you want to share.
  • For “Folder Name”, enter a name to describe the share.
  • Click “OK” and start the virtual machine again. (not necessary)
  • Create a mount point which is basically an empty folder.
  • Fire up the terminal and type:
    sudo mount -t vboxsf folder_name path_to_mount_point
    folder_name is the name you typed in earlier to describe the share
  • Wohoo! You should be able to browse the shared folder now.
Mental note: do not choose the same names for the folders (IDIOT!)
