Add Account to the vboxusers User Group

I installed Arch on Virtualbox and now I’m trying to add the account to the virtualbox group but fail. On the Arch wiki the command:

sudo gpasswd -a eduardolp3 vboxusers 

gives me:

gpasswd: group 'vboxusers' does not exist in /etc/group

I installed the guest additions to be able to talk to Manjaro and try Arch. Where am I wrong?

This is a support forum for Manjaro. What exactly is your host system and how did you install VirtualBox?

My host system is Manjaro and Virtualbox is installed with pacman.

I recently installed on a Manjaro host and didn’t use my username in the command and it worked. So ,just in case try:

sudo gpasswd -a $USER vboxusers

Log off to make change registered
