I think I now
know what you are really talking about. As I am playing around with my shared folder in Void with a Slackware client, and I can only get to it through root, logged in as root, or su in terminal.
I've added user to vboxsf group, tried changing the sf_sharedFolder user:group it didn't work. and permission 777, no go. then went su in term and got into it like that, then when I copied a file out of it (HOST) to client ( user ) dir under root (su), then I changed root owner to user owner on that file so that the client user name can do with it what it wills.
I'm still playing with it to see if I can get it to just use a user without having to use su in term to access the Host shared folder.
I may give up, I may not.
OK OK OK I GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!
I mounted my HOST Folder through my Client after installing all of that prior stuff and setting my share folder in VB. then in the client /etc/fstab adding this:
/home/userx/VBShare defaults,UID=1000,GID=999,dmode=1755 0 0
path to share folder on Host, then using my UID, and vboxfs GID then over riding permissions with dmode=1755 , now I can get into my share folder through the file manager with no probems in user account without having to use root or su in terminal.
I have two folders set up in the client VB keeping them auto mount, and make perminent -- with only one entry for mounting in fstab and I can get to both of them through the file manager. they both show up and am able to just click into them as without permissions denied error now.
