This may be a duplicate of #8056, but for me the shared folders work fine, whereas in that bug the user cannot mount them.

Guest is Linux 2.6.32 through 2.6.39.

NB, I'm still seeing this with 4.1.4

comment:3 Changed 3 years ago by michael

Sorry about this, but I have to ask - did you upgrade the Guest Additions in that guest? I thought I had fixed that problem.

Sorry, I forgot I still had guest additions 4.1.2 installed in the guest. I'll update this bug once I've upgraded them.

comment:7 Changed 3 years ago by cortana

You're right, I'm no longer seeing this with guest additions 4.1.4 installed. Thanks!
