Ubuntu: Unable to use USB in virtualBox



Question:

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?


Solution:1

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.
