Configuring the virtual machine

Change the keyboard layout

Once the SDK is installed, you might need to modify your keyboard layout for the Ubuntu operating system. The default keyboard layout is US. To change it, please follow these steps:

  • In the Ubuntu system, go to Applications Menu ▸ Settings and choose Keyboard.

  • In the dialog box, select the tab Layout, uncheck Use system defaults and click Edit under Keyboard layout. Select your required keyboard layout from the list, click OK and close the window. You do not need to select a Keyboard model.

Adjusting virtual machine window size

Once the guest additions are installed, the window size can be changed. Select the option Adjust Window Size. Then resize the window to make it appear as a normal working size.

Put the virtual machine in Fullscreen mode

You can switch the display of the SDK to fullscreen mode by selecting View in the VirtualBox menu and choosing Switch to Fullscreen.

You can still access the most important options of VirtualBox in the menu that appears at the bottom of the screen when you get close to it with your cursor.
