Download Guest OS
For this walk-through, we are going to install openSUSE as the guest operating system.
Download the offline ISO image for Intel/AMD 64-bit architecture from openSUSE’s website.
It’s a large download (4.4 GB in size). Make a note of the directory where you save the ISO file.
Install VirtualBox on the Host Machine
We are running Ubuntu on the host machine. Open the Terminal and type the following command to ensure your machine is up-to-date.
$ sudo apt update
We can then install VirtualBox with the command:
$ sudo apt install virtualbox
Start up VirtualBox from the Dash or from the command-line. You’ll see the VirtualBox Manager.
We can now proceed and create the new virtual machine to run our guest operating system.
