Exclamation network issue with oracle virtualbox

i have installed kubuntu either 12.04 or 12.10
I not sure which because I am tired

i think that it is the latter version
It wont install any apps at all or get any network access at all but virtualbox has an active network Icon so I not sure what went wrong but I gonna try a different linux distro in virtualbox and see if it works then but i want to use xubuntu so if anyone can help that would be awesome.

Re: network issue with oracle virtualbox

What kind of applications are you trying to install on kubuntu? Usually by some command line you are suppose to install the applications or any packages. The command is something like sudo apt-get install with the package name. And how exactly do you want to use xubuntu, either by freshly installing it or in virtualbox?

Re: network issue with oracle virtualbox

Can you please let us know first, which linux distro are you using, whether xubuntu or kubuntu, because in the first post you have written you were not able to install apps on kubuntu? Have you tried to reinstall the software:

sudo apt-get purge (software name) & sudo apt-get install (software name)
