Hello,

As I can see people are using this site to resolve Debian errors and I would like to ask some questions about the error I discovered using VirtualBox I did not know what to do.

Please this is the error as I saw:

The VirtualBox kernel driver is not accessible to the current user. Make sure that the user has write permissions for /dev/vboxdrv by adding them to the vboxusers group

Error:

The VirtualBox kernel driver is not accessible to the current user. Make sure that the user has write permissions for /dev/vboxdrv by adding them to the vboxusers group. You will need to logout for the change to take effect..

VBox status code: -1909 (VERR_VM_DRIVER_NOT_ACCESSIBLE).

Debian and virtual box error

Hey Suzi,

There is only one possible cause for this error:

You are failing to add a user to the group in "VirtualBox users" which may result in such an error.

Solution:

Reinstall the VirtualBox preferably the most recently launched version of Ubuntu.

And while installing Virtual Box:

You need to add the required users to group “vboxusers”. If you want to see the ownership info then it can be found with the following command:

owner ship info command of vboxusers

To add a user to the group, click Computer – YaST – Security and Users – User and Group Management.


Computer - YaST – Security and Users – User and Group Management

Select the specific user you want and click on Edit and after that select the Details tab, under additional groups, select “vboxuser” and click OK and click on Finish.

specific user-edit-Details tab-vboxuser” and click OK and click on Finish
 

Recommendations:

You should use the most recent version of VirtualBox on Ubuntu. You have to add the current Linux user to the group vboxusers.

With administrative privileges to add a user to group vboxusers. And remember to Log off after doing this in order changes to take effect.
