Virtualbox on Windows host and Linux guest: inability to overwrite files in shared folders from gedit
Submitted by Rocio Dominguez-Vidana
When you are using Virtualbox with a Windows host and an Ubuntu guest, you can't modify files from Linux, it sends you this error:
** (gedit:2107): WARNING **: Hit unhandled case 0 (Error renaming temporary file: Text file busy) in parse_error.
And it generates a file .goutputstream-XXXXXX
It has been reported both in Virtualbox and in Ubuntu, but no solution has been proposed there, and they have mentioned that it might be something with gedit and other applications (such as Nautilus).
