How to get USB working for VirtualBox in Ubuntu

In Ubuntu Gusty some changes were made to the way it handles usb, anyway to get USB support for Virtual Box you need to edit `/etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh and uncomment the 4 lines around line 40 (Magic to make /proc/bus/usb work). Then execute /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh start – this will then enable the use of USB in Virtual Box (oh you probably want to do the above as sudo).
Now there is a nice and geeky post biggrin.gif
