Install VirtualBox Ubuntu
Install VirtualBox 6.1 Ubuntu – To be able to install the VM box application on the Ubuntu, Linux operating system, here I give the easiest way.
Download the Virtual Box .deb file by clicking the button below
Open the Terminal in Ubuntu, navigate to the folder where the file is downloaded.
For example I have downloaded the virtualbox-6.1_6.1.36-152435_Ubuntu_jammy_amd64.deb file and the file is in the “Download” folder, then Install it using the command:
sudo apt install ~/Downloads/virtualbox-6.1_6.1.36-152435_Ubuntu_jammy_amd64.deb
If there are no errors, you will see the installation process looks like this:
