Control OpenManipulator-P from virtualbox?


I have installed ROS Melodic in Jetson Nano. Tried “roslaunch open_manipulator_p_controller open_manipulator_p_controller.launch” and the OpenManipulator-P responded.

However, I have installed the same ROS Melodic in Ubuntu 18.04 on top of virtualbox in my Windows PC. Tried the above command, and the dynamixels failed to be detected. I guess the USB is not enabled. Searched the web but couldn’t find a way to enable the serial port.

please help~

Unfortunately, running ROS in a virtual environment is not supported.
