Hello everyone. Been using Manjaro XFCE for the past almost 2 months, and it's been great! Was able to pull the OS-installed SSD out of my 10-year old computer that suddenly died, and plonk it into the new Ryzen system and boot it straight up. Wonderful!
Installed VirtualBox 5.2.20 today from the repo to run a Win7 guest for 2 reasons only: audiochecker to check FLAC files, and to back up my phone (Huawei P9 Plus (VIE-AL10)) using HiSuite.
Got the guest Win7 OS up and running, and it sees the shared folder from Manjaro Linux XFCE. Clipboard works bidirectionally. Drag and Drop works from host to guest but not vice-versa despite being set to Bidirectional; not a biggie. Installed audiochecker. Objective #1 accomplished.
However, VirtualBox refuses to see my USB devices despite the addition of the Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack (5.2.20) from the AUR. This is the output of lsusb:
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode) Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0d8c:0102 C-Media Electronics, Inc.

Bus 001 Device 005: ID b58e:9e84 Blue Microphones Yeti Stereo Microphone Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Creating a USB filter with the respective Vendor(12d1) and Product(107e) IDs of my phone didn't help either. Can't see my phone.
This is the output of groups myUserName:
wheel audio disk lp optical storage video network scanner power usbmux autologin vboxusers
Was getting a bit desperate to make things work, and I followed the suggestion of the last post in this thread to make this happen. Still no go; can't see any USB devices on VirtualBox. Doesn't matter whether it's on USB 1.1, 2.0 or 3.0.
So, as it stands at the moment, Objective #2 is still a fail. Am at wits end here and don't know what to do to further troubleshoot. Any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
