How to find shared folder in vbox Budgie?


#1

New to Linux. 2 questions please.

I installed Budgie as a Virtual box machine emulation. So far I love Budgie!

  1. In my Windows 10 host I have a shared folder.
    In VB Devices I set that W10 shared folder as both Automount and Permanent.
    But within Budgie, where do I locate that shared folder and then create a shortcut for it in the budgie desktop? I cannot seem to find it.

  2. I have a networked wireless printer (Brother HL-2270DW). Budgie does not seem to have a driver for the 2270DW. Is that correct?

Thank you.

To use the shared folder capability you need to install the VirtualBox Guest Additions and also add yourself to the vboxsf group.

Both are described here.

I dont know anything about Brother printers nor how to configure - but I found this on their website
