You need to press Ctrl+Alt+F1 key combination and you should see similar to the following screen

    On Kubuntu 14.04,with Vbox Ctrl+F1/F7 did the trick. Using alt invoked the command on the host machine, at least in my case.

    What if your host is Linux? Ctrl/Alt F1/F7 is processed by the host not the VM.

  6. Chris Hubbard says:

    If your host is Linux, you can use the host-F1/F7 (host key defaults to Right Ctrl).
