Add VirtualBox user to vboxusers on Linux

For VirtualBox to work correctly with a Linux host, you must add your username to the vboxusers group:

adduser $(whoami) vboxusers

VirtualBox usually does this automatically when installing VirtualBox.

Notes

  • USB devices also requires the VirtualBox Extension Pack installed on guest OS.
