heres an update, I tried both the stable and fast versions of the libusb file, and neither of them work, here is the terminal output when i try either one:
progress: initializing device context
progress: USB enumeration
progress: USB open
Error with USB open: Failed to open the USB device!.
progress: enumerating connected devices
Starting live sensor: PrimeSense SensorKinect
progress: creating sensor device
Error with creating sensor device: Failed to open the USB device!.
shutting down sensor
any ideas what is going on with this?
