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?

this. But I can add them, if you think it's worth.

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