Or if you just want to start the main GUI where you start everything from and configure the VMs, because you don't have a menu with shortcuts and whatnot, simply use 'VirtualBox'. Note the uppercase V and B, Linux is case sensitive. This is for the PUEL version you get from the website, the OSE version is all lowercase.
