Virtualbox, Debian guest, overwrite files on shared folders

Postby Danielsan » 2021-03-09 21:15

Hi Folks,

there is a long maybe, unsolved, bug that affects Virtualbox, it looks like you can't overwrite text or document file with a text editor like Mousepad or Geany. So far my workaround are working on internal drive and then copy on the shared folder (which is a removable device) or editing the txt file with nano, which can overwrite the file.

I'd like to if someone else has other workaround or even a solution, changing permits or owners didn't work, maybe mounting the folders on fstab with the right permits might work but I haven't test it so far.

Thanks,

D.
