Usbfs has been deprecated for a long time already. It was disabled since Ubuntu 9.10 (but you could recompile the kernel to get it --

/sys/kernel/debug/usb/devices. Other interesting places to check for the content from former usbfs are:

Try this. Just press Ctrl+Alt+T on your keyboard to open Terminal. When it opens, run the command(s) below:
sudo mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb -o devmode=0666
