The best is yet to come…

Note: Ubuntu Lucid Virtualbox USB Devices Greyed Out

leave a comment »

This is a permissions issue!

System > Administration > Users and Groups >

Select your UID… e.g “silverwave”

Click Button “Manage Groups”
Select “vboxusers” click Button “Properties”.
Tick the box next to your UID.


Doesn’t work until you reboot.

Note if you don’t see any USB Devices create a blank filter for you USB’s via settings.
