  1. First get root access (see Link)
  2. unplug the usb device you have an issue with
  3. execute dmesg (remember the last line)
  4. plug the usb device
  5. execute dmesg again
  6. now you can copy & paste the needed information to the forum post or github issue

Here a sample of a Wifi Dongle:
