Hi "werner147", Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum ! Nice Avatar ... I just read your post and the very good replies to it. Here are my thoughts on this as well.

just to backtrack a little - - that picture that you displayed, can you set that to USB 1.0 :?: which is the 1st item on that list. then follow what Cosmo has said, about adding yourself to 'group vboxusers ' - that step will also be needed, too. it's what Bolle1961 was mentioning, as well. :) [img...

Perfect! You are already on the way of learning. So as we now know the basic of your system: Open the menu -> administration -> Users & Groups. Inside mark your account. You will see at the right side near the bottom a list of groups, you are in. (The same, as in the output of the groups command fu...

Please repeat. You missed the dash (-) in front of Sz. So the given output is of no use. If you would also reread the last line of my advice, the output would be better readable. (For this small output it does not make a big difference, but possibly you have to give in the future a far bigger outpu...

Yes, this is what I wanted to see. And as you can see yourself, the word vboxusers does not appear there So the step to add yourself to the groups is not yet done. If we now go into little steps we need to check at first, which desktop environment you use. Open a terminal and enter: inxi -Sz Paste ...

A usb filter is for convenience, not essentially necessary to access usb devices in a VM. A wrong filter can create more trouble than good; so I recommend against, until the device gets recognized. wow guys, This is like a different language to me guys, I dont understand this at all :oops: I like t...
