Starting the Virtual Machine

Postby anirudhnk » 19. Apr 2021, 17:15


I am new to using Virtual Box. I have installed a virtual machine for Quantum Espresso on my computer.

But how do i start the virtual machine? When i type the following commands:

"cd /media/sf_host
touch testfile.txt

in the terminal, i get an error that there is no such file or directory. Could you please help with this?

Thank you.

Look over Chapter 1 in the Virtualbox help manual.
