    Ubuntu USB USb

    Hey guys, I've installed Ubuntu on Virtual PC 2007 (getting over the mouse and some display problems), and am now not sure how to get it to detect any inserted USB devices in Ubuntu, rather than the host operating system. Any ideas??

    Plus I can't seem to get my resolution at 1024x768.. it'll only let me use safe graphics mode (even though colour depth is 16).

    Thanks for your help,

    Tom

    I don't know about what setup you have, but to get things fully working there are things that have to be done. First uncomment four lines like so:

    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh
    
            mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs
    	domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644
    	ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices
    	mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb
    Uncomment lines 42-45 starting with #mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs like above.

    Svfe, then in terminal do:

    Code:
    sudo /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh start
    You might wish to add this line to your /etc/fstab file:

    Code:
    usbfs /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto 0 0  in the fstab file
    Some have found this necessary for USB flash drives.

    Let us know how you make out.
