I am facing a weird issue now. If I try to connect any USB device while in the middle of a session randomly, chances are, the USB device will not be recognized. If I reboot the whole system with the USB device still connected, it works fine after the reboot is complete.
Initially I thought this was something random. But now this happens all the time. It is starting to get very annoying. I have searched for this but haven't found any reports of the same kind. There have been reports of USB not getting recognized entirely but none of them apply to my scenario as the devices in question start working without a problem after a restart. Why is that? I don't know where to start debugging this. Can anyone help?
I am running ElementaryOS Freya on a Lenovo G50 laptop.
