Comment (by wenzeslaus):

 The text update for the part with Guest Additions should be something

 Open the VirtualBox window, open the Devices menu and click Install Guest
 This will mount the Guest Additions as a CD drive in your OSGeo Live VM.

 Once the CD folder appears, open a terminal (from the bottom panel - there
 is a small
 greenish icon) and run the following commands (you type just the part
 after dollar and space,
 use tab to auto-complete):

 user at osgeolive:~$ sudo apt-get update

 It will ask for password, type 'user'.

 user at osgeolive:~$ sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-

 user at osgeolive:~$ cd /media/user/VBOXADDITIONS_4.1.18_78361/

 user at osgeolive:/media/user/VBOXADDITIONS_4.1.18_78361$ sudo

 This will complete after a few moments. Reboot your VM, and you will now
 be able
 to run in full screen mode, and mount your shared folders.
