Oracle Virtual box 4.2.12 in Linux Mint 15 Olivia

Virtual box can be installed directly from the repositories.

sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.1virtualbox-guest-dkms virtualbox-guest-utils virtualbox-guest-x11

Check that you running the latest versions first.

Click on Help --> Check for updates.

Next install the VirtualBox Extension Pack

Simply follow the link and double click.

VirtualBox 4.2.12 Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack  All supported platforms 

Next step is to add the vbox user.

You don't have this? Bummer?

sudo apt-get install gnome-system-tools

Restart Mint 15

Unfortunately this needs a restart of Linux to take affect. If this was Windoze the you will see a screen saying installing 1 of 5000 updates...Please do not power off!

With Linux a restart is quick and painless.

Looking good so far!

The Windows default dong has just sounded!

And the only reason I need to have Windoze?

Ni Hao!
