    I had the same problem with my installation of kali-2016.1 on Virtual box. Following steps fixed it for me.

    apt-get purge virtualbox-guest-x11
    apt-get autoremove --purge
    reboot
    apt-get update
    apt-get dist-upgrade
    reboot
    apt-get update
    apt-get install -y virtualbox-guest-x11
    reboot

    Of course, you have to enable bidirectional copy & paste and shared folder option in Virtua box Machine setup.

    I try it, but nothing :-( any other suggestion?

    And I have problem getting my Alfa adapter on Monitor mode too, so I donto know if it's about the same, cause It works fine if I use it on Kali stand alone.

    Ok, I make it work:

    Just did:

    1.- apt autoremove
    2.- apt-get remove && apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y && apt-get dist-upgrade -y
    3.- apt autoremove

    And now it's working the saher and copy&paste.

    But still having problems with the alfa adapter: I'm here -->> https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...8virtualbox%29

    Thanks for the help.

    Thank you. This worked much much better than the other stuff I've tried. Full screen and shared clipboard now work like a charm. But I'm still having issues with the drag and drop. It "allows" me to drag and drop files into the guest system but the files never actually show up. Any ideas? I'm working from a windows host.

    Hi, I was having the same problem and I tried this method, but after the second reboot, kali linux is not even capturing my mouse and I cannot navigate the screen. Any idea what's happening?
