Hi friends, in today's tutorial you'll learn how to use USB devices in VirtualBox if the real system is Ubuntu Linux and Windows at the VirtualBox is, be it XP, Vista or Ubuntu Linux 7 or all.
We've done a tutorial in the past about using USB devices in VirtualBox But then the real system was Windows. If the Windows things were simpler and use USB devices in VirtualBox Extension Pack requires only the installation of it and install Guest Additions in the virtual operating system on Ubuntu things change a little. Besides the fact that it will be necessary here to install the Extension Pack and the VirtualBox Guest Additions in the system, have to do something in the real system (Ubuntu Linux). Specifically, you will need to add Ubuntu user to group "vboxuser"
CAREFUL: After you add your username in the group "vboxuser" will have to give a real system restart. It is advisable to not have and do not run on VirtualBox virtual system when you add your username to the group "vboxuser"
Once you have done these steps, we can enjoy USB devices and operating system in VirtualBox even if the real system is Ubuntu Linux. As I said in the tutorial for Windows, USB devices connected to the virtual system can not be folosoite and real system at the same time. You have to disconnect the USB device from the virtual system so it can be used in the real system. That said, I invite you to watch the video tutorial to see exactly what to do to use USB devices in virtual system when the real system is Ubuntu Linux.

      Restart is more "holy" does not miss the train ... why did not hurry. That's why many of you encounter error and will not go ba ba one another. news not to be patient, often skip over small steps and important thinking that are useless
