Ok, why do I like, VirtualBox, well because it’s fast, stable, free (duh). But there is one problem that is just killing me. And few days I found a solution for the same.
1. Add usbfs group
# groupadd usbfs
2. Add your ass to that same group
# usermod -a usbfs username
3. vim /etc/fstab
4. Add //
# my vbox usb support
none /proc/bus/usb usbfs devgid=500,devmode=664 0 0
5. VBoxManage list usbhost
6. Restart the system
Please note that devgid=500 (in my case its 500) in your case it’s probably different, it’s the number of your vboxusers group …
This work, this adds usb support to your VirtualBox, but not the one I wanted, so again I had to move back to VMware Workstation. But since just recently SUN acquired VirtualBox, I’ll be watching its development progress.
Well, I had stories with beryl/compiz 3g desktop in general, just go on and search blog if you wanna. Anyways, last time I used compiz-fusion was sometime in late October 2007, I was just devastated with its bugs, so I removed it. Same happened with all of my previous 3d desktop experience.
This was performed on Debian Lenny/Testing, KDE 3.5.8, 184.108.40.206 on Intel 945GM
So I installed it yesterday, my first impression was … well this is getting better. I mean I just had feeling that it just wont crash and explode :) That’s the kind of feeling I had before. Many bugs were fixed, but still … there was a lot of … well problems. Which I’m just too lazy to go over right now. Since compiz-fusion is in Debian Lenny/testing respiratory, that’s the one I was using, anyways, this is what I suggest.
Use “shames” compiz-fusion resp, I also tried his “unstable” compiz-fusion resp, but it was just too much for me, but the one from testing … absolutely beautiful. So add his resp. to your sources.list
