Re: VirtualBox definitely has no USB printer support

I'm using virtualbox, and I certainly do have printer support. complete and quick with an hp1300 psc printer. even the scanner, photocard slots, etc. work just like they are supposed to. Only problem is that once it is 'captured' by the guest system, I can't use it in Linux without shutting down the guest system first, and then disconnecting and reconnecting the usb cable of the printer. no big deal
