I´m using a vinyl cutter for my business, but I have to use virtualbox with windows 10 in order to use the programs (cricut design space, and Vinyl Master for a generic chinese-like ploter)
I have been able to install and use the design aspects of both programs without problem in Manjaro using wine, however no matter what I tried I can´t get them to detect any USB device whatsoever.
I have read similar threads in this forum related to USB peripherals not being detected in WINE, but at large it doesn’t seem to be a general solution, I wonder if there is something else I could try.
This is my first forum entry so Idk if i´m being too vague or if this should be posted in a more specific category, but i´m open to learn and try stuff so thanks in advance.
Before you read any further: Do not run wine asroot!!!
What you’re running into is that your USB port is only directly accessible by root whereas it’s directly accessible to any user under Windows. As I don’t have neither your hardware, nor your software, you need to read up on rights and permissions under Linux and give the user you want to use your Hardware/Software combo enough rights that they can exclusively access a particular USB port to the exclusion of everyone else and then always plug in that particular hardware in that port.
So I don’t know your Linux experience and / or if the above is making any sense to you, but if you’re a Linux N00b, please read this first:
then let me know which bit of the above still doesn’t make sense…
