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.

How Install VirtualBox 6 Ubuntu Terminal

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:

$ sudo apt install ~/Downloads/virtualbox-6.1_6.1.36-152435_Ubuntu_jammy_amd64.deb
