shared folder in workstation not working

Hi, I have followed the instructions in the official guide > KVM section > shared folder.

in host:
mkdir /home/user/shared
chmod 777 /home/user/shared

in ws virt-mgr details: did the same as in the official guide.

But when I start the ws, there is no shared folder. I rebooted all (incl. host) but still the same issue.

Any idea how to solve this?

This is because of a bug in the shared folder service in the guest that prevented it from running and creating the needed folder. You will need to create a directory ‘/mnt/shared’

Run sudo mkdir /mnt/shared inside the guest.
