Virutalbox for ubuntu 13.04

+3 votes
53 views

I installed virtualbox from the synaptic package manager and then loaded windows 7 and also installed the extensions pack. For some reason when I plug in usb devices they can't be accessed by the virtual windows 7. Every time it says failed to install drivers for the usb device when I plug in a usb memory stick, or iphone or etc. What can I do to get usb support to work, the usb devices are shown in the lower portion of the virtualbox window but won't work in windows 7.

You have to tell the virtual machine it can use the USB device.

In the 'Devices' menu at the top of the screen select 'USB' and then tick the devices you want to use in the Windows 7 virtual machine.

Do you use an usb hub? If yes, try without it.When connecting it to ubuntu without an active vm, can you access the device?

I am using kate in a gonme/unity environment.

Now on two different computers (not on an some others) I have the problem, that kate crashes as soon as I open a file. This only happens when:
- the "Terminal tool view" is activated
- a terminal view is open
- konsole is installed in the system using apt-get

as soon as konsole is uninstalled from the system, kate works fine, but the (very handy) terminal tool becomes useless.

can anybody point me to a solution?

After updating from 12.10 to 13.04, I see that the Update Manager has been replaced by a Software Updater that shows a tree of updates with verbose ("baby talk") descriptions. Is there any hidden configuration setting to bring back the flat list with package names shown prominently?
