How to : Enable USB support in Virtual Box over Ubuntu

July 1, 2012, by tapan, category How To, Linux, Ubuntu

I cant use USB in my Virtual Box Guest OS, when ever i clicked over USB from Virtual Box it shows to add the current user to vboxusers. But i was unsure how to do this. After a comprehensive search i found a easy command to add my user to vboxusers group. The command is as follows,

sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers your-user-name

This will add your user to vboxusers group so that usb device recognized from your account can be recognized on virtual box.

So, what do you think ?
