Install Guest Additions

Using the repositories is easier than doing a module build

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-additions-iso

The alternative is to use the documented way from VirtualBox and may get you more up-to-date tools

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install dkms
sudo reboot
#(insert the virtual CD and open the location so you can copy the path)
cd <path from above>
sudo ./VBoxLinuxAdditions.run
