It works for me with Virtual Box 3.0.2 and Debian squeeze. It took me
a little while to get it working properly though, I can take a look
later when I get access to the machine to see what my final
I remember experimenting with different versions of the guest
additions. I tried installing the debian packages, I tried installing
the guest additions from the Virtual Box menu, and I tried just
nothing (xorg already has some built-in support). Unfortunately I
can't remember which I settled on.
