Using USB devices and Clipboard does not work with VirtualBox 6.1

Postby Mick P. F. » 14. Jan 2020, 14:58

Hello ...,

I use an Intel NUC 5 (quad core Pentium woth 8 GB RAM) running Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit with original kernel 5.0.0.xx as the host and Ubuntu 18.04 32 bit with original kernel 5.0.0.xx as the VM client. I need the 32 bit version for an older software package.

Using USB devices (stick, external HD etc.) does not work anymore. It worked with VirtualBox 5.x before.
Using Clipboard between the host and the client does not work anymore also.

Is there any solution in process?

Kind Regards,
Michael

We'd need a guest log to start to see where the problems might be. Zip and post the guest's vbox.log, using the forum's Upload Attachment tab.

Re the USB issues, please see USB basics and troubleshooting. If you can't get the USB devices going with steps 1-7, please post step 8's command outputs as text in [code] tags, and the guest log with the USB insert steps using Upload Attachment.
