Is there any tool which lists the controller, hubs and devices of USB subsystem in their tree structure at the shell?

lsusb lists flatly and does not show all the details. usbview has a GUI, but shows the tree structure and all details of the devices. Any tool that shows whatever usbview does, but at the shell?

  • Have you tried the verbose option lsusb -v for details ? – heemayl Jul 30 '15 at 2:56
  • @heemayl: Does not display as a tree. – Ashwin Nanjappa Jul 30 '15 at 3:51
  • yeah..now you need something that can sort that out.. – heemayl Jul 30 '15 at 3:52
lsusb -t

This also shows the current speed, so you can see e. g. keybaord and mouse with 12 Mbps.

    lsusb -t loses the human readable device descriptors that lsusb shows. Add -v to get them back, or lsusb -tv – Guss Dec 25 '19 at 9:00
