          I looked all over for this for the past two weeks and finally found the following:

          SOLVED

           

          Please open the following file: /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh by following command - gksudo gedit /etc/init.d/mountdevsubfs.sh

           

          Find the following lines:

          #mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs

          #domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644

          #ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices

          #mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb

           

           

          Unmark them so that look like this:

          mkdir -p /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs

          domount usbfs "" /dev/bus/usb/.usbfs -obusmode=0700,devmode=0600,listmode=0644

          ln -s .usbfs/devices /dev/bus/usb/devices

          mount --rbind /dev/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb

           

           

          Restart and your usb devices will be recognised
