Add user to vboxsf group to ease mounting of shared folders

Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: shared folder


You can easily share folders between the guest and host system with VirtualBox with automatic mounting. I just tried it in osgeo-live-11.0-vm.vmdk and had no permissions to access the mounted directory. Simply adding the default user to the vboxsf group solves this.

Please add the default user "user" to the group "vboxsf" to ease mounting of shared folders. I see no protentual issues.

Fixed propose in PR #231:

Not tested, but rc.local is not created and used by Ubuntu 18.04 anymore, so it creates a full systemd service that start at eash startup.

A bit overkill but it should unsure that the issue is fixed.
