i have want to access a folder from /home from my ubuntu vm but i cant can anyone help i have added that but i cant
The message in your screenshot suggests that
spice-webdav needs to be installed in your VM first.
How can i do it?
I assume it’s going to be something like
apt update && apt install spice-webdav but the Ubuntu package might be named something different.
This package does not exist
I don’t have an Ubuntu box handy, so I used a container:
podman run -it --rm ubuntu:latest bash
From here, I ran
apt update && apt-cache search spice to search for the right package.
There are a number of agents, but @grumpey’s suggestion looks to be correct:
spice-webdavd - daemon to proxy WebDAV request to the Spice virtio channel
So, the solution seems to be to run this on the Ubuntu guest:
apt update && apt install spice-webdavd
You may or may not have to reboot, but you might try that and see if the option then shows up for you in Boxes.
