hey - i'm new to ubuntu, giving it a shot virtualized with virtualbox. i've searched forums, and i can't get a solution. i'm trying to get a shared folder mounted. it's set up in virtualbox. i'm logged under my regular non-root account. i created a folder in a directory (using the non-root acct), and using the GUI i edited the properties of the folder to give access to everyone in the "admin" group. then i did: sudo mount -t vboxsf [shared folder] /home/myaccount/directory i can't access the directory - says i don't have permissions. so i tried giving "everyone" permissions using chmod. didn't work. so i tried editing the permissions in the GUI as a super user with sudo nautilus. didn't work. what else can i do? i've been reading forums like crazy, but this is the big roadblock for me with linux. everything requires sudo, but when i do something with sudo the regular accounts dont have access and i have to keep trying things in terminal. i don't have a problem wrestling with an OS a bit, but i'm stuck.
