I just installed arch on virtualbox to test it out but for some reason it's not displaying correctly ( here's how it looks: ) I'm using virtualbox version 4.2.16

Basically I just followed the beginner's guide and installed cinnamon after it was completed.

I also enabled 3d support, assigned 128mb to video memory and followed the steps here to install the guest additions. I think the problem is that the guest additions aren't working correctly since I tried to use the shared clipboard functionality and it didn't work either, I'm not sure how to troubleshoot the problem at all can anyone give me some advise?

Seems like an improperly set screen resolution to me. –  Joseph R. Aug 20 '13 at 16:59
I have the same problem if I run full screen so it's probably something else –  javiervd Aug 21 '13 at 1:49
