Virtualbox-ext-oracle 6.1.18-1

Hello, mates.

I installed virtualbox-ext-oracle 6.1.18 to work with usb pendrives.
It enabled usb 2.0 and 3.0 in virtualbox but, when I click on the Add New USB button, it does not list/show the devices connected.



I have the following installed:
linux 5.11.13.arch1-1 - linux-headers 5.11.13.arch1-1 - virtualbox-host-modules-arch 6.1.18-25

Someone can help me, please?

P.S.: It does not show a list like this one below:

Is your user a member of the vboxusers group?

i do use the one directly from oracle:
https://download.virtualbox.org/virtualbox/6.1.18/Oracle_VM_VirtualBox_Extension_Pack-6.1.18-142142.vbox-extpack
simply download and add it from virtualbox settings

And have a look on our virtualbox wiki:

  1. Add Oracle extensions (optional)

But i do see that usb does not get detected here also…
While i have no issue on qemu (Virtualmanager)

Nope :wink:

I executed the following command after your question:

sudo gpasswd -a oskaralhos vboxusers

and voilà, but I had to restart the machine to really recognize me.

Thank you very much.
