usermod -a -G spice $USER

It worked until today :-(

Don't know why but spice-gtk do not use polkit anymore in this version (whereas the support seems to be enable in the configuration).

Waiting for a patch, this workaround works for me :

cat <<EOF >/etc/udev/rules.d/50-spice.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", GROUP="spice", MODE="0660"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", GROUP="spice", MODE="0660"
EOF

usermod -a -G spice $USER

Thank you so much for posting this workaround.  I can confirm that I was able to get USB redirection to work.  smile  Hopefully the issue will be patched soon.

Thanks @kyoshiro38. As of this writing, this still seems to be the only workaround.

kyoshiro38 didn't work for me.

However, running virt-manager as root worked.
