    Default VirtualBox usb error.

    Not sure if this is right place to ask this?
    openSUSE 11.0, linux 2.6.25.11-0.1-pae, VirtualBox-1.6.2_31466_openSUSE103-1


    I get the following error when I click Setting in the Vbox manager. If I
    give it an OK I get the management screen and it shows 1 active usb device.
    It my usb printer.

    I was able to print the test page from XP Home the first time, but now I
    cannot print anything from XP. Prints fine from Linux.

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


    Result Code:
    0x00004005
    Component:
    Host
    Interface:
    IHost {81729c26-1aec-46f5-b7c0-cc7364738fdb}
    Callee:
    IMachine {f95c0793-7737-49a1-85d9-6da81097173b}

    Where do I find the USB Proxy Service?

    Let me know if I am in the wrong place or if you
    need more information.

    Thanks for any help.

    You seem to be using the oss 10.3 ver of vbox?

    I use vbox but just don't bother with usb, never need it. But I think the non-oss ver available from sun: Downloads - VirtualBox
    has full usb support

    If you intend sticking with the suse oss ver then you should have this repo:
    Index of /repositories/Virtualization:/VirtualBox/openSUSE_11.0
    Leap 15.1_KDE

    No I downloaded the SUN version with usb support. It was a 10.3 rpm which
    seemed to work fine until today when i get the mentioned error message. At
    first I was able to print to the printer thru cups on the host linux
    system.

    yes it does and thats the one I installed. My problem is my print connects
    to my host as a usb device (Xerox Phaser 6120).

    Not using the SUSE version as it is OSE and has no usb support.

    Thanks for the response. I'll look on the SUN site for any type of help or
    clues. If I find an answer I'll post it.

    Hi there, I've got a write-up of how to get USB working with VB on my Linux blog (see below), you might find it helpful.

    Thanks for the clear explanation. To mount usbfs at boot add "mount usbfs" without the quote marks to /etc/init.d/boot.local.
