#when I had problems with virtualbox clipboard:
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-guest-x11
sudo VBoxClient --clipboard
You don't need to install all the virtualbox-*. I installed virtualbox-guest-dkms, which depends on virtualbox-guest-utils, and it recommended I install virtualbox-guest-x11, so I did so as well. It appears that the guest additions are working, and then $ reboot.
For me, I couldn't enable screen sharing, because I was running in "Wayland" (as that was the only desktop I could use). Well, Wayland doesn't support the screen sharing option.

Use x0vncserver as explained in how to start a vnc server for the actual display (https://www.howtoforge.com/tutorial/how-to-start-a-vnc-server-for-the-actual-display-scraping-with-tigervnc/).
sudo apt-get install tigervnc-scraping-server
Then set a password
Then start the server with
x0vncserver -passwordfile ~/.vnc/passwd -display :0
---- end (for x0vncserver) part.
Замена логин скрина для поддержки входа через VNC (its was one of the most important parts after I've installed RDP server, it's substitution of login screen which isn't able to connect VNC to display, only to a session which isn't suitable for me, so I've used this tutorial too, and it worked.
