USB redirection by VMware Horizon View Client for Linux
 
hi

I've installed newest 2.0.0 VMware Horizon View Client for Linux
on my Wheezy machine and it seems to works well, but just USB redirecton doesn't work.

Knows anyone, how to to get USB device working with VMware-View?
I mean to transfer some files over USB stick to the virtual Desktop.

Thanks in advance for any help.

USB redirect may be blocked by admins of target VDI
 
It is my understanding that allowing USB from remote clients is a feature that must be enabled by the administrators of the VMware Virtual Desktop infrastructure that you are connecting to. First thing to do is to ask those managing the infrastructure if USB is permitted.

I've asked admins, USB mapping is allowed and it works on any windows client.
The problem is just linux client.
