Virtual Machine Error - USB Direct

Anybody know how to resolve not being able to redirect a USB device to a Virtual Machine ?
I’m using Tumbleweed and set up a Virtual Machine but not able to redirect USB devices. Using KVM

Error : q-exec-error-quard: Could not redirect General USB Flash Drive (090c:10000) at
2-4: Failed to execute child process “/usr/bin/spice-client-glib-usb-acl-helper” (permission denied (3)

Wouldn’t this be better to draw attention of the people with the appropriate knowledge in the Virtualization section?

Yes, I’m sorry I"ll try to move it

I think you can not. But you can use the “Flag” icon to ask staff to do that for you.

Thanks! I appreciate all the help I can get

This is what resolved the issue for me.   Thanks to all those who helped!  It was driving me crazy

sudo usermod -a -G libvirt,qemu,kvm  (Username Here)
systemctl reboot
