USB not available in one Virtual machine

Hi,
I have installed two VMs. On one (i.e. Mobisec) USB is not available but USB is available on another one. I have used the following command:
sudo adduser zulfi vboxusers
[sudo] password for zulfi:
The user `zulfi' is already a member of `vboxusers'.

My virtual Box version is 5.2.18 Ubuntu r123745
& Virtual Machine version is: Mobisec 1.1.iso

Somebody please guide me.

Zulfi.

It looks like you're using the distro's fork version of VirtualBox. You can either ask in their forums/channels for help, or completely remove/uninstall/delete/purge their version and install the official version from the Linux Downloads section of VirtualBox (https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux_Downloads).

Hi,
For sake of USB installation I did purging just two days ago but I faced lot of problems. Also the particular linux distribution forum is not active like this one.

Thanks for your reply.

Hi,
<You can either ask in their forums/channels for help,>
I think there is not so much difference in the commands and both are from Oracle.

Please guide me.
