Mount a shared folder on a linux (Debian) guest:
- Make sure you have already installed the Virtual Box Guest Additions.
- Set up a ‘transient’ folder via the Virtual Box GUI (Devices > Shared Folders)
- In a terminal window in the linux guest, run:
sudo mount -t vboxsf name_of_shared_folder_in_VBox ~/directory_in_guest_os/
