Default Ubuntu LTS as a guest OS: some issues (Virtualization)

Hi,

In of the PC Ubuntu LTS has been installed in the virtual box but the
strange issue is as follows:

While screen resolution is not set Ubuntu is seen only in the center
position of the whole monitor, while when I open any application, it
opens with the default size, so more bigger while the visualization is
so short. The current resolution is: 800 x 600 and there is not an
option bigger than this in the Monitor Preferences. See this:
http://postimage.org/image/3rg3gw3eh/ the whole of the opened firefox
fits itself in the entire way, and still I am not able to see the
complete window of FF. How can I fix this?

Thanks.

I think you should install the virtualbox guest additions to the system
inside virtualbox.

You should now be able to increase the size of the VirtualBox window.

Then reboot the virtual machine. This time the xserver should select a
higher resolution. If it doesn't work, you could try the xrandr command
in a terminal to find out which resolutions are available and switch to
the wanted resolution.

Well that I did from Devices but another great issue is that I am not
able to use pen drive in the guest Ubuntu. So for it what I do?

If you want to use USB devices in the VirtualBox guest system, you need
the "VirtualBox Extension Pack" from
<https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads>.

Already done, but still not detecting, what should I do something else?

When the VM is running, you can goto the Devices menu of the VM and
select the USB device you want to attach to the VM. However be careful
not to attach your mouse or keyboard. Devices attached to virtual
machines are no longer attached to the host system.
