I am running out of ideas. Hopefully someone else on the forum and figure out the dependency issue.

You may need to create a symbolic link to your location of the libusb library.

You will need to find the location of your libusb library and then create a symbolic link from there to /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib

I think MacPorts puts it's packages in this location: /opt/local

So if you want to create a symbolic link from /opt/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib to /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib

sudo ln -s /opt/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib

Now try to execute the ./dfu-programmer command and hopefully it will be able to find the libusb library.

man, your help is really highly appreciated, but i think i loose now the overview over everything.

your last post did help:

doing this

sudo ln -s /opt/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib

Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:chronome claudiobattista$ sudo ./dfu-programmer atmega16u2 erase
Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:chronome claudiobattista$ sudo ./dfu-programmer atmega16u2 flash Arduino-usbserial-atmega16u2-Mega2560-Rev3.hex
4034 bytes used (32.83%)
Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:chronome claudiobattista$ sudo ./dfu-programmer atmega16u2 reset

i can see the arduino in my system profiler now.

but from this point on i am lost in space...

this are my next steps but problems again.aaaaaaaarghhhhhh


again this "cannot run C compiled programs." error

Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:arduino-usbserial claudiobattista$ cd ~/Downloads/confuse-2.7/
Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:confuse-2.7 claudiobattista$ ./configure

Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:confuse-2.7 claudiobattista$

so mainly what i don´t understand is,

1. why am i not able to run C compiled programms


2. why is terminal still telling me this, when doing: sudo make dfu ? why at90usb82 ?????

Claudio-Battistas-MacBook-Pro:arduino-usbserial claudiobattista$ sudo make dfu
dfu-programmer at90usb82 erase
dfu-programmer: no device present.
make: *** [dfu] Error 1

WTF  :(



works like a charm now.

the problem was some funny issue with the root permission which didnĀ“t let me do some commands in the terminal...

thanks to everybody...
