But now i get strange error messages from packetmanagement about some dependencies which are not satisfied. and the internal update managment dont shows me new updates, it says it is up to date
Hi I take it you installed this version - virtualbox-4.1_4.1.14-77440~Ubuntu~maverick_i386 which is the latest. Also did you upgrade the Guest Additions?
Can you post the output of the two common commands pleaseI am curious about what the dependencies are.Code:sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
ppa Oracle VM virtualbox
#sudo add-apt-repository "deb http://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/debian precise contrib"
#wget -q http://download.virtualbox.org/virtu...racle_vbox.asc -O- | sudo apt-key add -
#sudo apt-get update
#sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.1
Download extension pack and install it.
And YOU have to add ur user to VBOXUSERS.
Are using Ubuntu 12.04LTS.
I just posted a video how to...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThA9I...1&feature=plcp guest additions installed as well. Hope this helps.
I have a clean install of Precise 64 bit. I installed VirtualBox 4.1.12 from Ubuntu's repos, together with the Guest additions iso. I've 'added' Guest Additions using VirtualBox. I've also added the corresponding Extension Pack (i.e. version 4.1.12). I'm running Windows XP as the Guest. Everything works (e.g. shared folders, mouse integration) fine except for "no usb devices" both in the Devices>USB menu entry & the icon at the window's base. I have myself included as a user in the vboxusers group. Both the "Enable USB Controller" & "Enable USB 2.0 (EHCI) Controller" check boxes are set in VirtualBox's Settings>Storage.
I'm baffled. Any ideas please?

If you want the device to automatically connect to the guest, bypassing the host entirely, you need to create a specific filter for it by having it plugged in when you create the filter, and selecting that device as the filter's subject. Complete details are in the help file.
I have both situations set up on a number of VMs here, with both XP and Win2K guests, and all of them work as expected. Hope this helps!

I have tried creating an empty usb filter with usb stick plugged in but no go. I'm away from home for a week. Will try again when home.
Thanks, Jim. It worked OK provided that I had the memory stick plugged in when I added a filter & selected the appropriate device.
PS after the hack of the forum, there is no automatic login when I click on the forum's bookmark. Also, the login procedure does not return me to the thread that I was looking at when I want to reply to a post . Is there a cure for these nuisances?
