Can't resize Ubuntu screen in virtual box
Hi there everybody,
I am getting really frustrated on a far to trivial problem. I am running ubuntu in virtual box on a windows 7 64bit machine. By default the screen has a resolution of 640x480 and thus only shows the upper left corner of the actual screen, meaning I can't see the entire screen. I was able to figure out, that I have to install guest additions but as soon as I go to devices -> install guest additions I get an error, that the medium couldn't be placed into the drive. It further asks me whether I want to force it to be mounted but if I say "yes" nothing else happens.
Any chance there is a simple way to solve this problem or is this really such a complicated issue?
Furthermore I would prevent linux from going into standby. Actually the settings say, that it will never go to suspend but it does so after it wasn't used for approx=. 5minutes or so.
Thank you guys very much for helping me getting rid of my newbeness :P
