I need the package libusb for another package I am installing.

I tried the following which seemed to install the package,

sudo apt-get install libusb-dev

but when I try to install the other package I get,

configure: error: Package requirements (libusb-1.0 >= 0.9.1) were not met:

No package 'libusb-1.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIBUSB_CFLAGS
and LIBUSB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

When I run the command dpkg -L libusb-dev, I get:

You need to install libusb-1.0-0-dev

To install the package

sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0-dev

To find out the dependency of the package use the command apt-cache search libusb-1.0

Here is the output of the command

$ apt-cache search libusb-1.0
libusb-1.0-0 - userspace USB programming library
libusb-1.0-0-dev - userspace USB programming library development files
libusb-ocaml - OCaml bindings to libusb-1.0 (runtime)
libusb-ocaml-dev - OCaml bindings to libusb-1.0

Hope this helps

You need to download the package libusb-1.0-0-dev, the new libusbx fork.
