Errors installing VirtualBox Guest CD (Debian)

After trying to install VirtualBox Guest CD on my fresh installed Debian copy I came up with some errors.

Oops. There was a problem running this software…

The first thing you’ll come up with is a problem that cannot execute the autorun file. What you should do is to fix the /etc/fstab file from this:

/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,noauto


/dev/sr0        /media/cdrom0   udf,iso9660 user,exec

Now you can run the file!

Missing dependencies?!

Well here is a fix that worked for me:

$ sudo  apt-get update #Run always before any dependency install

$ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r)


These are the problems that I faced with. If you got any other problems comment below and I’ll try to help you.
