For context, I am trying to get this to work on a Windows host. I think this shouldn’t make a difference but don’t know enough about VirtualBox to know.
What I want is that I can resize the VirtualBox window and the desktop size of OS running inside the VM needs to adapt automatically.
- This doesn’t work with the usual
virtualisation.virtualbox.guest.enable = true;
- It doesn’t work with the VirtualBox appliance for download here.
- Manually installing the guest additions by mounting the .iso does not work on NixOS. I don’t understand NixOS yet but I think it both wants to change things which it is not allowed to change and cannot find some binaries that it expects in default paths.
If anybody has this working I would appreciate some pointers.
