Summary0006164: Virtualbox bidirectional clipboard not working
DescriptionUnder Virtualbox 6.1.4 and with both hosts Windows 7 and Kubuntu all was working fine until the upgrade to kali virtualbox guests extensions 6.1.4.
After the upgrade the sharing host/guest clipboard stopped to work (but the shared folders is still working).
I reinstalled the precedent version of kali virtualbox guests extensions 6.1.0 and all work fine again as before the upgrade.
There must be a bug in the new version of kali virtualbox guests extensions 6.1.4 (virtualbox-guest-x11,virtualbox-guest.dkms, virtualbox-guest-utils).
Thanks to your attention
Steps To ReproduceUnder Virtualbox 6.1.4 upgrade Kali guest to the kali virtualbox guests extensions 6.1.4. Check if the sharing host/guest clipboard work (you will see it will not).
Download manually from the kali repository the three kali virtualbox guests extensions 6.1.0 files (virtualbox-guest-dkms_6.1.0-dfsg-3_all.deb - virtualbox-guest-utils_6.1.0-dfsg-3_amd64.deb - virtualbox-guest-x11_6.1.0-dfsg-3_amd64.deb) and install them. Reboot the kali guest VM and you will see that the sharing host/guest clipboard work again.
