Bug Description

After a fresh install of Lucid RC with all updates and installing Sun VirtualBox from there website I am not able to use my USB printer in VirtualBox.It is visible but greyed out.USB mouse,keyboard etc. all work and a filter has been setup for the printer in VirtualBox. HOWEVER if i run and install VirtualBox as root (gksudo) the printer installs correctly and is usable. I've been using VirtualBox with Karmic with no problems .
AMD 64 X2 3/gig Nvidia Gforce 6150 SE
Lucid 64 bit RC
Installed Windows XP Service Pack2 in Virtualbox v3.1.6.r59338 with Guest Additions

As far as I can see there is no Lucid package yet or am I wrong?
