Hey nickmaelao, your outputs show you've only changed the ownership of
the USB bus and not the USB device itself...I'd suspect if you looked at
'ls -la /dev/bus/usb/001/' then the actual USB device will still have
root ownership.  Ergo if libvirtd is still creating the vm's with qemu
and a non-root user you will still have the problem.

chmod libvirt-qemu:kvm /dev/bus/usb/001/xxx (xxx being the USB device
numeber) should resolve.

Alternatively you could change /etc/libvirtd/qemu.conf and make libvirtd
create guests with qemu as the root user, look for the 'user = ' and
'group = ' lines.  I can't comment on the risk associated to this so
you'll need to look into that yourself but I've taken this approach and
have no problems with USB attachment and I don't need to manually change
device ownerships.
