I don't know what might be wrong with older versions of VirtualBox, as I test
the images with libvirt only.

The first time you log in you should see a terminal popping up and asking for
your name and email for git commits; then all the required repos are downloaded.
The setup script is called by this file:
Do you have this file within your home directory?
Is qterminal installed?

I thought about including the fonts, but then I changed my mind because they
are optional and there's an open issue in the tracker to find a solution for

Strange, I experienced the opposite. I guess that it depends on the hardware?
