usb not working in ubuntu 10.04

Postby nanog » 25. Jan 2010, 10:46

USB no longer works in ubuntu 10.04. There are vbox /dev/bus/usb entries and the host's usb bus shows up in the settings-->usb filter but no devices are detected:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$VBoxManage list usbhost
<none>

perhaps deprecation of hal is the problem.

(ps: i am using puel, have added myself to the vboxusers group, and usbfs is deprecated in ubuntu)

udev rules are identical to 9.10:

#cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-vboxdrv.rules
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
KERNEL=="vboxdrv", NAME="vboxdrv", OWNER="root", GROUP="root", MODE="0600"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", GROUP="vboxusers", MODE="0664"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", GROUP="vboxusers", MODE="0664"

Ubuntu 10.04 has eliminated hal in this (beta) version. VirtualBox relies heavily on hal and as such it has broken some things in VirtualBox. Bugtracker and timeline show they are working on this and by the time Ubuntu 10.04 is released it will work.

As a temporary workaround for ubuntu lucid (10.4) you can run in terminal:

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
hald --daemon=no


before running virtualbox to get usb working for guest os.

This work around doesn't work for me, is there anything else I can try?

Never mind, I updated ubuntu and it works now.
