While I wouldn't mind an answer to that question, it's actually
working; however, my program that uses libftdi & libusb to talk to my
ugen still needs to run as sudo to see the device - but if I run chmod
666 /dev/* (which I'm sure is a bad idea), I don't need sudo; what
device is required for libusb besides ugen?  The hub?
