[vbox-dev] Problem with GNOME while running openSUSE as guest

Recent versions of openSUSE are using sddm as the display manager, but X is no 
longer run as root. In a VirtualBox VM, KDE works fine, but GNOME fails to 
start. Version 5.0.6 of VB is employed. What seems to be a similar problem with 
VMWare was fixed for Fedora at 
Thus far, I have not found a fix for VirtualBox.

If such a fix is available, please provide a link. If not, I would appreciate 
any suggestions on where such a fix would be applied. My knowledge of X servers 
is limited.
