Trying to add to
sudo gpasswd a $USER vboxusers results in
Trying to run a Virtualbox instance and access a USB device connected to the host PC. I tried to run the above command (changing the $user to me) and the response was :
gpasswd: user ‘vboxusers’ does not exist
Version 6.1 of Virtualbox, with Extensions installed.
EDIT: Seems it was the wrong syntax, should have been
sudo usermod -a -G vboxusers <your_username>
It’s now working.
The syntax of
gpasswd is correct - assuming virtualbox is correct installed.
vboxusers does not exist on the guest - but the host as it is the user on the host which initiates USB passthrough.
network scanner lp wheel manjaro
$ grep vbox /etc/group
$ sudo gpasswd -a $USER vboxusers
Adding user manjaro to group vboxusers
usermod command can used as well.
Two ways to achieve the same result but on the host.
Cool, thanks for that. It does get confusing at times
