Virtualbox: Ubuntu 10.10 Host – No USB support

Yesterday I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10 from Ubuntu 10.4

Since then I have problems to attach a USB device to my guest Vboxes operating systems (ubuntu and win).

I finally find the solution via this postin the virtual box forums:

Just run this and reboot:

sudo usermod -aG vboxusers <your username>
