On a guest gentoo virtualbox vm:
- host + guest virtualbox versions 5.2.32
- dbus started
- bidirectional clipboard sharing enabled from the GUI
- app-emulation/virtualbox-guest-additions running
- i3 window manager used
Few issues here:
1- the autostart .desktop file is irrelevent for i3 and not deployed after emerge
2- the clipboard sharing doesn't work, unless VBoxClient --clipboard is manually run.
3- using the provided default xorg.conf file prevents prevents startx from running (https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1103208-highlight-virtualbox.html)
4- it could be good to check -during GA emerge- whenever dbus is started and added to default runlevel

Xorg log of provided xorg.conf file
startx fails with the xorg.conf file provided by virtualbox-guest-additions.

Xorg log of startx without xorg.conf config file
startx succeeds when xorg guesses its own config.
