I have tried to download the phidgets 2.1 source  but It seems that the package is not available on the web.

I want to see it and read the instruction to help you out.

If you have the package with you then when you unzip it you will see files named README and INSTALL, these two files have all the info and necessary steps to carried out.

You can send them to me or you can use them to help yourself.

Which Linux distro you are running, It is Redhat or Centos or fedora or ubuntu which one?

Also tell me the version as well so that I can suggest you necessary steps to fix this issue.

ubuntu server 11.04 I got the same error using ubuntu 10.04 as well. I tried installing libusb in 10.04 and got a c++ error that when I googled said c++ is not installed correctly thats why I rebuilt using server 11.04 with lamp and unity installed as I needed mono-developer installed
