This is to inform you that I am able to fix the Guest Addition installation
issue, Now Pressing Ctrl+N showing me the Guest additions Versions: 4.3.10
r93012, but the mouse still not working, I checked Machine>Disable Mouse
Integration is NOT checked
I still see the mouse not visible on Ubunto screen.
Thanks & Regards
