When I attempt to start the vagrant appliance I get the following error:

==> default: Mounting shared folders...
    default: /opt/galaxy/tools => /Users/lparsons/Documents/projects/galaxy_tools/tools
Failed to mount folders in Linux guest. This is usually because
the "vboxsf" file system is not available. Please verify that
the guest additions are properly installed in the guest and
can work properly. The command attempted was:

mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`getent group ubuntu | cut -d: -f3` opt_galaxy_tools /opt/galaxy/tools
mount -t vboxsf -o uid=`id -u vagrant`,gid=`id -g ubuntu` opt_galaxy_tools /opt/galaxy/tools

The error output from the last command was:

stdin: is not a tty
id: vagrant: no such user
uid= requires an argument (i.e. uid==<arg>)

If I login via vagrant ssh it appears that the default user is ubuntu and not vagrant

$vagrant ssh
