Package: gnome-boxes
Version: 3.26.2-3
Followup-For: Bug #889990

Dear Maintainer,

I was having the same issue on a derivative distribution (pureos).
After discussing on their bug system they found that the user should be
in the kvm group.
You can see the discussion there:

so you can try:
   sudo adduser <youruser> kvm
   newgrp kvm

And see if it works for you !

Hope this helps,

Julien VdG
