Subject description: command line for USB devices to be seen by Virtualbox
 

Virtualbox needs to be configured to see USB devices.

After installing Virtualbox in your host system, and the extension pack of same version (mandatory to optimize Virtualbox and have USB 2.0 or 3.0 enabled), chances are Virtualbox won't see your USB devices out-ot-the-box.

Here is a command line to help with that problem :

$sudo gpasswd -a $USER vboxusers

You replace $USER with your username.

It should work with all kind of linux distro.

This command line should work for Ubuntu and derivatives :
$sudo adduser $USER vboxusers

To complete configuration, reboot your host system.

You can do the same with GUI, but you need a complete desktop, such as Gnome, you look for Group, vboxusers, then you click Properties, and you add username. Log off and login.

You need the USB Extension pack for the Guest system under that Host system.
