Virtual Box Set UP

Just stumbled across Jing and can’t tell you how excited I am to finally be able to get a 1st class Linux tablet to replace my Apple tracking device!!

Anyway, I have tried to set up Jing in a virtual machine using Virtual Box and MX Linux to no avail. I have tried a couple of different configs and I make it past the lock screen to the welcome screen and then nothing happens.

Any suggestions?

what’s your current hardware?
Did you installed Virtual Box Guest Additions?


If I am reading that correctly those 2 links apply to windows.

As mentioned in the OP I use MX Linux.

To answer your question, no I have not installed guest additions as I do not have any cd to load them from. Below is my system info
