More on USB support on VirtualBox

If you upgraded your system to Ubuntu 8.04, maybe you can't locate the correct rule to modify in the udev configuration file specified in last post (/etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules).
So open your /etc/rc.local script as root and add the following line to allow VirtualBox attach to your USB:

#USB Support for VirtualBox
VBOX=$(grep vboxusers /etc/group | sed 's/vboxusers:x:\(.*\):.*/\1/')
mount -t usbfs -o devgid=$VBOX,devmode=664,nodev,noexec,nosuid none /proc/bus/usb

Add these lines before the exit 0 command.

I hope this post may help someone,
