I am using fedora as host and ubuntu as guest in my virtualbox.

I followed this link How to set up USB for Virtualbox? completely.

But no result.

I updated to latest version in virtualbox,changed my usb device but again I am getting same problem(no usb connected).

Is there any other solution to fix this?


Add you as a vboxusers user. You have to be in the vboxusers group.

sudo adduser $USER vboxusers

To verify it:

$ groups
yourUserName : yourUserName adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev lpadmin scanner sambashare vboxusers

If this still doesn't work, Log out and log back in.
