 +====== VirtualBox USB Error Under Ubuntu Linux ======
 +
 +I've installed VirtualBox on several Ubuntu Linux machines and I usually get this error when I launch VirtualBox or navigate to the settings for a virtual machine.
 +
 +//Could not load the Host USB Proxy Service (VERR_FILE_NOT_FOUND). The service might be not installed on the host computer.//
 +
 +I found the solution below at https://​bugs.launchpad.net/​ubuntu/​+source/​virtualbox/​+bug/​151585.
 +
 +Open the ///​etc/​init.d/​mountdevsubfs.sh//​ file.
 +
 +Find the following lines:
 +
 +  #mkdir -p /​dev/​bus/​usb/​.usbfs
 +  #domount usbfs ""​ /​dev/​bus/​usb/​.usbfs -obusmode=0700,​devmode=0600,​listmode=0644
 +  #ln -s .usbfs/​devices /​dev/​bus/​usb/​devices
 +  #mount --rbind /​dev/​bus/​usb /​proc/​bus/​usb
 +
 +Remove the comments (#) so that the lines look like this:
 +
 +  mkdir -p /​dev/​bus/​usb/​.usbfs
 +  domount usbfs ""​ /​dev/​bus/​usb/​.usbfs -obusmode=0700,​devmode=0600,​listmode=0644
 +  ln -s .usbfs/​devices /​dev/​bus/​usb/​devices
 +  mount --rbind /​dev/​bus/​usb /​proc/​bus/​usb
 +
 +Restart using the following commands and then close and re-open VirtualBox. ​ Your USB devices should be recognized.
 +
 +  /​etc/​init.d/​mountdevsubfs.sh stop
 +  /​etc/​init.d/​mountdevsubfs.sh start
 +
