VirtualBox USB permissions

If you find in Google any Ubuntu solutions, these do not work for Fedora!


1. Create a new group called “usb”
2. Locate file usbfs: in my case is /sys/bus/usb/drivers (I suggest to find the file with a usb device inserted)
3. Modify file /etc/fstab inserting a line containing the right path and the number corresponding the “usb” group :

none /sys/bus/usb/drivers usbfs devgid=503,devmode=664 0 0

4. Issude a command

mount -a

5. Start VirtualBox
