virtualbox error - Failed to access the USB subsystem

Has anyone else received this error before?  I have an up-to-date system and have the virtualbox-ext-oracle package installed.

Failed to access the USB subsystem.
Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might not be installed on the host computer.

Re: virtualbox error - Failed to access the USB subsystem

According to a mod over on the virtualbox forums, this is an Arch-specific issue.  Can anyone else confirm this behavior?

Re: virtualbox error - Failed to access the USB subsystem

At root:

# /etc/rc.d/vboxdrv fixusb
# usermod -a -G vboxusers <username>

and relogin or reboot.

Re: virtualbox error - Failed to access the USB subsystem

Didn't work:

# /etc/rc.d/vboxdrv fixusb
usage: /etc/rc.d/vboxdrv {setup}

I'm already in that group:

No, working fine here. There's also this thread from a while ago, might help.

Re: virtualbox error - Failed to access the USB subsystem

Hi,

I was having the exact same issue after removing virtualbox_bin (AUR) and installing virtualbox (community).
It got fixed after adding myself to the vboxusers group.
