I have a USB desktop laser, for which the MS Windows software doesn't run particularly well in Wine. So I tried VirtualBox 5.2.12, but I can't seem to get the USB device to be recognized. Wine would recognize the USB device.
The Windows VM is Windows 7, my OS is Ubuntu-Mate 18.04.
In VirtualBox I have tried settings for USB 1.1, USB 2.0, and USB 3.0, and I have installed the
virtualbox-ext-pack. Im not sure what else to try. In the windows VM, the device manager states that the USB hub is "unrecognized".
