It's usually better and faster, if issues like this one (configuration, question) get first addressed in the  VirtualBox forums. More than 95% of the issues are resolved over there, which keeps the developers focusing on the bug fixes and enhancements, and there is no need for another ticket to keep track of. For example, yours is most probably not a bug and someone from the developers has to deal with it and close it as "Invalid".

  • priority changed from critical to major

If the 2D box is greyed then VirtualBox cannot make use of 2D acceleration. If you are using the .deb package from then there should be an application /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxTestOGL which is used to test if the host supports 2D video acceleration (which is only supported for Windows guests btw). You might want to execute

/usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxTestOGL --test 2D --log log.txt

and have a look at log.txt.

I have NVIDIA Corporation GeForce GT 620 [10de:0f01] (rev a1) and installed the latest driver version 375.66

Then Problem is always not resolved

Conclusion : button 2d acceleration always grayed.

I try the version 5.1.23 ,then the button "2d acceleration" is now black (not grayed), (operational).
J'ai tester la version 5.1.23 , le bouton "accélérateur 2d" est maintenant activable.
