    Virtual Box - Failed to access the USB subsystem.

    Hello everyone,

    I'm having troubles accessing USB on my Virtual Box.

    Here's the message I'm getting:


    p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Failed to access the USB subsystem.
    VirtualBox is not currently allowed to access USB devices. You can change this by adding your user to the 'vboxusers' group. Please see the user manual for a more detailed explanation.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Re: Virtual Box - Failed to access the USB subsystem.

    Thank you for your willingness to help, but this article shows how to deal with it on Ubuntu, and I'm on Kubuntu. It's different.

    I can't follow the steps. When I go to User Groups, there is no "Click the "Unlock" button..."

    I'm attaching a screenshot.

    from terminal

    Code:
    sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers username
    where username is your username then logout and back in
