How to list all USB devices in Linux

Description

Use any of the following commands to list USB devices on a Linux system. lsusb is the most concise. The dmesg commands are quite verbose, and so also usb-devices. The last three commands, lsblk, blkid, and fdisk are only relevant if you have a USB drive.

$ lsusb
$ dmesg
$ dmesg | less
$ usb-devices
$ lsblk
$ sudo blkid
$ sudo fdisk -l
