Briefly describe your issue below:
I have been using parrot without issue for a while, First off thanks much to the devs, this is by very far way my Preferred OS!
Although recently I ran into an issue after installing virtualbox. First installed virtualbox and VM vurtialbox Extention pack, I then started my VM’s (normally boot on another computer running ubuntu) with attached usb devices (To the vm through virtualbox vm settings) and also with shared folders normally on my other computer I have no issues and can use it well with no su needed. When trying to start the virtualmachines on the parrot PC everything worked perfect up until the point where I tried to add shared folders and/or USB devices. Shared clipbord option has no issues and works well though when trying to use shared folders or usb devices tjey do not show up. I add a shared folder attempt to mount it and it simply wont even show up in “/media” folder as it should also when trying to add usb devices attached to the VM it doesnt show any devices that I can attach to the VM it is just an epty dropdown list in virtualbox. I tried running virtualbox as superuser/root and what I found is that I am then able to use,see, and attach any usb devices I need as I should be and they work in that case but I am pretty sure that its not a good idea to run virtualbox as root as it then gives root access to VM’S. My guess is maybe it has something to do with firejail or something like it blocking access but no matter what I still cant get shared folder access on the vm’s? Any and all solutions or help are greatly appreciated thanks for your time!
