Full Version: /usr/bin/ld: Cannot Find -lusb Error? Help?
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support

No one has been able to help me with this problem and I mean know one lol I have asked hundreds of so called linux experts, and none have given a solution that worked.

I am having no luck at all installing my adsl modems, either one.
I had decided to give l
Linux another go because people were swearing blind to me that it was getting a lot better, but it seems every time I try it again, no matter the distro, I always end up with an unfixable problem that I canít solve. It simply scares me away, why does it have to be so hard to operate? Itís supposed to be a system designed to make my life easier not more stressful?

Anyways I am after installing either my Zoom modem or my Copperjet allied data 800 one, both adsl usb modems.

With the copperjet one I managed to get hold of a driver for it from sourceforge, and it looked to be the promising of the two for a success, but I am getting the following error when I do a, make

cc -I../lib/libusb -c common.c
cc -I../lib/libusb -lusb 5160.c common.o -o 5160
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lusb
collect2: ld returned 1 exit stats
make[1]:*** [5160] Error 1
make[1]:leaving dir the dir i was doing the make in
make:*** [911] error 2

Now I had a look around through google doing a search for, lusb, and found some forum posts relating to, usbutils, package, and it not being installed, so I checked and usbutils is installed on my machine,

So I am stumped, I have no clue what to do next??????????

Its so frustrating because I have the driver for the copperjet modem right here I just canít install it because of that dumb error above.

If its not asking for usbutils with lusb in it, then what the hell is , -lusb, and how can I get it on my system?

Or if its not asking for -lusb then what the hell is it asking for??????
Can anyone out there help me at all?? I am a n00b and have no clue what to do next at all???

I am using Mandrake 9.1
