Install VirtualBox Guest Additions in Debian Wheezy (7.0 and 7.1)

Either of the following two methods will install and configure the VirtualBox Guest Additions on Debian Wheezy (7.0 or 7.1) – assuming you have clicked on “Install Guest Additions” option on the VM Menu.

# apt-get update
# apt-get install build-essential module-assistant
# m-a prepare
# mount /media/cdrom
# bash /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run


or

# apt-get update
# apt-get install gcc make
# apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
# mount /media/cdrom
# bash /media/cdrom/VBoxLinuxAdditions.run


Contrary to what some people have experienced, I had no trouble invoking the GNOME 3 Shell in Debian 7.0 or 7.1 when running in VirtualBox 4.2.16 under Microsoft Windows 7.
