Do you want to start a virtual machine when you log on to a graphical session? If so the best way to do so is using your dektop's autostart facilities. Are you using Gnome for your desktop?

Alternatively, do you want to start a virtual machine and access it over the network?

I think you can get virtual box to directly boot a virtual machine (Eg called winxp) with the following command

Code:
vboxmanage startvm winxp --type gui
You can run the command "vboxmanage --help" to see the other options.

If the above works from the terminal, then you are just a short step away from having it start automatically when you log in.

Since you say you are using ubuntu I'll assume you are using gnome. I can't remember the exact layout of the menu since I haven't used gnome in a long time. But anyway you need to look for an item in then menu called something like "Sessions". After selecting that you need to add a "Start up program" (may be called something slightly different). Once you have found this dialog, add the command I show above.

Cheers,

Evo2.

achu@achu:~$ vboxmanage startvm winxp gnome2
The program 'vboxmanage' is currently not installed. You can install it by typing:
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-ose
vboxmanage: command not found



i already have virtualbox the current version

Sorry can't do that. As I don't use Ubuntu (or as I said gnome), and you will learn much more if you do something for yourself.

To test the command from my last post, you need to enter it into a program called "Terminal". You can find this in one of the menus, probably "Accessories".

Ok, I didn't see this post.

According to the ubuntu web page it should be installed as a part of the virtualbox-ose package:



http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?se...armic&arch=any

What version of Ubuntu are you using?

Thanks. How did you install 3.0.10?

I suspect the desktop directory/folder is treated specially by both Gnome and XP so I would be surprised if everything works. For example XP sortcuts are not the Same as nautilus' (Gome's file manager's) links. As a workaround, can you create a directory on the desktop in Gnome and use it from XP?

It seems is should to be there. Can you check:
Code:
ls -al /usr/bin/vboxmanage
Also can may be able to find it with:
Code:
dpkg -L virtualbox-ose | grep -i vboxmanage
