I want to be able to copy and paste text into my ubuntu server which is just a terminal. I installed the virtualbox guest additions but it doesn't help.

Everythign is instaleld successfully althought i get the Message: "The headers for the current running kernel were not found. If the following compilation fails then this could be the reason" I don't know, why it is saying, the headers were not found. Also, it doesnt seem to matter since there was not error following this warning.

Try to run the following command:

apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`

Already tried this, which just gives me: "linux-header- is already the newest version. But thanks – xotix Jan 3 '13 at 13:18
What uname -a prints? Did you try apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade ? – Antony Tren'kin Jan 8 '13 at 14:00
