Ubuntu: Unable to use USB in virtualBox


I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and I'm new to both Ubuntu and VirtualBox. I've already enabled USB controller for Windows 10 virtual machine, But no devices are available when I click to "add USB filter button". So what should I do now?


You must add your user the vboxusers group by doing:

sudo usermod -G vboxusers -a <username>

Or by edditing the /etc/group file with nano, or vim, and adding your user name in front of vboxusers:

Remember, you must do this in the host, not in the guest. Then logout and login again, or reboot your computer.

Aditya suggest: The extension pack could be required,

see the comments for details.
