What would you like to do?

Please install VirtualBox 5.1.2 or compatible from, and Vagrant 1.8.5 or compatible from The virtual machine has been tested with these versions only.

Download the file from google docs, using the link and run the following commands. It assumes the downloaded box file is at ~/Downloads.

vagrant box add erlyberlydemo ~/Downloads/
mkdir erlyberlydemo
cd erlyberlydemo
vagrant init erlyberlydemo

The init command does not enable the desktop, so the Vagrantfile must be edited manually :(

Copy this into the config block of the Vagrantfile in the directory.

  config.ssh.forward_agent = true
  config.ssh.forward_x11 = true

  config.vm.provider :virtualbox do |vb|
    vb.gui = true

    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--memory", "2048"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--cpus", "2"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--graphicscontroller", "vboxvga"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--accelerate3d", "on"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--ioapic", "on"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--vram", "128"]
    vb.customize ["modifyvm", :id, "--hwvirtex", "on"]

Start the VM.

vagrant up

After a start up sequence, you should see the Ubuntu desktop login screen.

The user and password is vagrant. The desktop is gnome 3. There are some links in firefox to get you started, though all will be explained in the walk through.
