USB device not recognized on guest OS
I am using ArchLinux on top of Ubuntu 12.04 using VirtualBox. However, I am facing problems with my USB devices. When I connect a USB to my PC, while running arch linux, it is ubuntu which detects my device instead of arch.
I went through some ArchLinux forums, to find out that my user should be included in the special group "vboxusers". Also, as a setting to my VirtualBox I have enabled the USB EHCI controller on the guest OS (arch).
As as output for lsusb, I get the following on Arch:
[mantis@ArchLinux ~]$ lsusb

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
