USB peripherals works only if plugged during boot

cx flag

Using Xubuntu 22.04 LTS on an Alienware 17-R3, if I boot my PC with an external drive already plugged in, it works perfectly.

But if I plug it in after boot, it just isn't recognized. Neither lsusb nor usb-devices see the external drive at all.

What could it be? Is there a way I can somehow "reset" the system USB detection?

Look at the system startup logs (and device detection) with `sudo journalctl -b 0`. Watch `sudo journalctl --follow` as you plug in the USB devices.
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
