After upgrading to Ubuntu 12.10, I have been unable to restart my Oracle virtualbox.

[email protected]:~$ sudo /etc/init.d/vboxdrv setup
sudo: /etc/init.d/vboxdrv: command not found

Where do I go from here? Can anyone help, please?

I tried to install virtualbox via these commands:

echo "deb $(lsb_release -sc) contrib" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/virtualbox.list
wget -q -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update 
sudo apt-get install virtualbox-4.2

Attempts to install via package manager vbox would not start. These error reports are received:

Because the USB 2.0 controller state is part of the saved VM state, the VM cannot be started.To fix this problem, either install the 'Oracle VM VirtualBox Extension Pack' or disable USB 2.0 support in the VM settings (VERR_NOT_FOUND).

Result Code: 
NS_ERROR_FAILURE (0x80004005)
IConsole {db7ab4ca-2a3f-4183-9243-c1208da92392}

I installed the extension pack, no change in result.

I have added myself as user, but the error report says user must be added, when I redo add user, it says user is already added.

The following outputs were also received:  

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Nuwe skelm. Implementation of the USB 2.0 controller not found!

I cannot access the USB 2.0 setting to disable it. Where do I go from here, please?
