I am trying to set up a vbox image that will be distributed to several people with several different types of OS. Namely, microsoft, apple and Linux.
I want some folders to be shared between host machine and virtual machine, however vbox asks for an absolute path to the shared folder on the host. How do I supply a path relative to the current users home directory, like
~user in Linux, so that the image is more portable across platforms?
With absolute paths, I will need to tell all users of the vbox image to manually reconfigure the shared folder path, which I would prefer to avoid.
