So that line needs to be commented and mount -t usbfs -o devgid=$(awk -F: '/^vboxusers:/{print $3}' /etc/group),devmode=664 /proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb needs to be added so that vboxusers have permission. You need to add your local user to vboxusers group so that the permission can be inherited.
so this means that we don't need to use non-ose version for usb pass through hehe i love open source
