Ubuntu Unity menu does not find VirtualBox

I had problems getting Ubuntu 11.10 to find the VirtualBox console in order to run it. To fix the problem a placed a


line in the virtualbox.desktop file in /usr/share/applications. Once this line was added it showed up normally.

I am running VirtualBox 4.1.12 ADM64 debian.

Please reopen if still relevant with a recent VirtualBox release.
