VirtualBox on Linux: solve USB access problems

With just a simple command!


Have you just installed VirtualBox on your Linux Box, but the virtual machine cannot access the host’s USB ports?

It’s just a permission issue: simply run VirtualBox as root, or (more correctly) add you user account to the vboxusers group:

sudo usermod -aG vboxusers <your username>

It’s easy! 🙂
