Something is very wrong with usb support on Ubuntu. So, I have 2 USB 3.0 ports on the motherboard, along with 4 USB 2.0 ports and also 2 USB ports on my front panel. USB 3.0 isn't working and running lsusb and this is what happens:

Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 058f:6366 Alcor Micro Corp. Multi Flash Reader
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04a9:2676 Canon, Inc. CAPT Device
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 043e:70d7 LG Electronics USA, Inc. 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 18c3:6255  
Bus 004 Device 005: ID 04f3:0103 Elan Microelectronics Corp. ActiveJet K-2024 Multimedia Keyboard
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

How the hell is this even possible, I just switched from windows and I am starting to worry about driver compatiibility.

Perhaps this is something in the BIOS, but I don't know. Note: I don't know if relevant, but it boots through EFI (which is a good thing, I hope).

Remark: Previous ubuntu running on computer was either 13.04 or 12.10 and everything seemed normal then.

I have tried plugging in my gamepad, keyboard and mouse.

The ports seem to be powered though, I can charge my phone for example.

  • Do they work if you plug them in and then reboot? – Tim Jul 28 '14 at 11:03
  • Let me try, wait a little. Also my kernel seems a little old. – user2563892 Jul 28 '14 at 11:04

    Ahh the kernel may be the problem! What version do you have? uname -r – Tim Jul 28 '14 at 11:06
  • 3.13.0-32-generic. I just restarted and it shows something containing UVC for a moment, but boots quickly and OK. Maybe that has something to do with it. – user2563892 Jul 28 '14 at 11:09
  • Do you perhaps need specs? – user2563892 Jul 28 '14 at 11:10
