Installing the VirtualBox Guest Additions software in Kali Linux

The automatic installer for the VirtualBox Guest Additions doesn’t work in Kali Linux 2018.2 (Or any other version of Kali) when using VirtualBox 5. The system will show an error:*Oops! There was a problem running this software. Unable to locate program.*

The solution is to run the installer from the terminal.

1. First, run the the command **apt-get install linux-headers-amd64**
2. Mount the installer from VirtualBox and then run the following command from the terminal

If you are running as root:
***sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run***
If you are running as a regular user:
***sudo sh /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run***
