Menu > System Tools > System Settings > User Accounts

It doesn't do much anymore ( It's really an Add / Delete Users utility - groups are gone ) but you should find it there.

I need to find group Vboxusers, and add myself to it, so that I can add usb devices to my virtual windows.

You need to go "old school":

If "vboxusers" is the actual group name then to add yourself to that group:

Code: Select all

sudo gpasswd -a altair vboxusers
Then logoff ( not reboot ) and login again for the group membership to take affect.
