    usb not working in Innotek VB on ubuntu710

    I have installed innotek VB (1.5.2) and im having some problems with the USB

    Every time i open up a virtual mac i get............


    Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed on the host computer.


    Result Code:
    0x80004005
    Component:
    Host
    Interface:
    IHost {81729c26-1aec-46f5-b7c0-cc7364738fdb}
    Callee:
    IMachine {31f7169f-14da-4c55-8cb6-a3665186e35e}


    I have given myself access to the /etc/udev directory as i have seen that many post have been access issues. I can get some information on the USB posts used by typing LSUSB and the output is

    bus001 device005: ID03f0:1016 ipaq/hp

    So i am happy that the ipaq is connected to the PC. but i can not connect the usb to a VBox. Can anyone help out with this?

    Many thanks

    Maybe this will help you: http://www.arsgeek.com/?p=2776 "Get USB devices mounted on your Virtualbox XP machine in Gutsy (Ubuntu 7.10)"

    or just add this line to /etc/fstab

    none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=1002,devmode=664 0 0

    the devgid number is the vboxusers group id (check to see if yours is different)

    Once you've saved and closed fstab just do a sudo mount -a and you should be good to go.

    Does this work without enabling the "Magic to make /proc/bus/usb work" mentioned in the posting before? I am wondering if such modifications of files in /etc/init.d might have unwanted side effects. I would feel more comfortable if changing /etc/fstab would be enough.

    The fstab line is all you need. Obviously make sure that your also a member of the vboxusers group and that you use the correct devgid id.

    Re: usb not working in Innotek VB on ubuntu710

    Hi everyone,
    Does this thread and solution refer to the virtualbox in the repos ? That is the ose form rather than that from the innotek website which I read on another thread has usb support ?

    And do you need to have build-essentials installed in order to get XP installed in virtualbox ?

    Thanks for any help

    I don't think the ose version supports usb. I installed the version from the virtualbox site by adding their repo to my /etc/apt/sources.list. As a kernel module needs to be compiled you should have build-essential installed
