Have you installed the VirtualBox Extension Pack?

Have you installed the Guest Additions:

The Guest Additions make a HUGE difference in the graphics performance
of your guest machines.


Hi
No.
I only have the 4.1.4 from the 12.1
Would that make a difference?
Thanks,

If you have VBox 4.1.4 and you want the extensions you need to install
the same version as the base install. I linked the current 4.1.8
because that's the current release.

More important is that you have the Guest Additions installed - those
are available in both the openSUSE rolled edition and the version you
download direct. Just install as documented - you will need gcc and
the kernel dev packages in your guest Linux OS.
