Post subject:  Virtualbox error on boot up

HI,

I'm getting the following message when I boot up

vboxclient the virtualbox kernel service is not running. exiting.

I haven't installed this client or vitualbox. I dual boot Win 10 and was able to mount the ntfs partitions but now mount says there is a a corruption on the target partition/device. All this happened after an update, I only take the recommended updates. Win 10 still boots ok

Geoff

Virtualbox is installed by default in UberStudent. You can deinstall it, if you do not need it.

Quick, immediate fix - run this line in a terminal:
Code:
sudo find /etc/X11/Xsession.d/98vboxadd-xclient -type f -exec sed -i 's/notify-send/echo/g' {} \;
Done.

Virtualbox itself is not installed by default in UberStudent but the "Guest Additions" module for Virtualbox is. This allows people to run UberStudent fullscreen in Virtualbox without installing anything additional, i.e., without installing guest additions. Multiple mainstream Linux distros, such as Linux Mint and others, but not Ubuntu or its derivatives, follow this practice.

I do know about this annoyance and it's already fixed in an update to uberstudent-xfce-default-settings-enduser that I'll be releasing very shortly. I fixed it 15 minutes after it was released in to the Ubuntu repository. ;-) It's not a bug but a supposed new "feature," see the specific code and the line notify-send "VBoxClient: the VirtualBox kernel service is not running. Exiting." here. You can safely ignore this annoyance for now and at the forthcoming said update, it will go away. Alternately, if you want to fix it manually on your own and not wait, it is very easy to do. This explains. Or just run the immediate fix, above. :geek:
