Please note, if you'd like to install our live image to an VirtualBox hard drive, you have to remove the live image from the virtual CD/DVD-ROM after installation. This will be done after Power off the machine via VirtualBox OSE Manager.

Once Mer/Plasma Active is installed, you may want to enable the mouse cursor.
