       lsusb - list USB devices


       lsusb [ options ]


       lsusb is a utility for displaying information about USB buses in the system and the devices connected to them.


       -v, --verbose
              Tells lsusb to be verbose and display detailed information about the devices shown.  This includes configuration descriptors for
              the device's current speed.  Class descriptors will be shown, when available, for USB device classes including hub, audio,  HID,
              communications, and chipcard.

       -s [[bus]:][devnum]
              Show only devices in specified bus and/or devnum.  Both ID's are given in decimal and may be omitted.

       -d [vendor]:[product]
              Show only devices with the specified vendor and product ID.  Both ID's are given in hexadecimal.

       -D device
              Do  not  scan  the  /dev/bus/usb  directory,  instead display only information about the device whose device file is given.  The
              device file should be something like /dev/bus/usb/001/001.  This option displays detailed information like  the  v  option;  you
              must be root to do this.

       -t     Tells lsusb to dump the physical USB device hierarchy as a tree. This overrides the v option.

       -V, --version
              Print  version information on standard output, then exit successfully.


       If the specified device is not found, a non-zero exit code is returned.


              A list of all known USB ID's (vendors, products, classes, subclasses and protocols).


       lspci(8), usbview(8).
