ATtiny 85 programming using an Arduino

I’m trying to use the Arduino to program an ATtiny 85 for a project. Following the instructions of Randofo’s Instructable(http://www.instructables.com/id/Program-an-ATtiny-with-Arduino/). Upon attempting to upload the code, this error message appears :

avrdude: usbdev_open(): did not find any USB device “usb”

My code is from the instructable Backpack Anti-Theft Alarm with a bit of modification to test if it can upload at all.

(http://www.instructables.com/id/Backpack-Anti-Theft-Alarm/)

with the added lines of

#include <Arduino.h>
#include <WProgram.h>

Currently I’m using version 1.0.5-r2 of the IDE

Any help would be greatly appreaciated.
Thanks in advanced :smiley:

You have the wrong programmer selected / are using the wrong programmer to upload.

Thank you for the help! I did not select the right programmer. :cold_sweat:

Glad to be of assistance.
