SYNOPSISlsusb [ options ]
DESCRIPTIONlsusb is a utility for displaying information about USB buses in the
system and the devices connected to them.
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.
Show only devices in specified bus and/or devnum. Both ID's are
given in decimal and may be omitted.
Show only devices with the specified vendor and product ID.
Both ID's are given in hexadecimal.
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.

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, sub‐
