I've been trying to set up Fedora 25 in Oracle VirtualBox for the purpose of learning Linux Command Line. I need the bidirectional functionality for both copy/paste and drag/drop tools but even after installing Guest Additions correctly they still don't work.

If anyone knows how to resolve this issue I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

Thanks in advance.

maybe you need to set in devices -> drag n' drop -> bi directional

What you need to do is to add user to vboxusers group

Go to : Administration/ Users and Groups than Select user and groups and tick on vboxusers group
