Programmer type not specified

Im trying to get my arduino set up under ubuntu 7.10
It seems to be working fine until I try to upload a sketch, then I get this error message:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
avrdude: libusb access not available in this configuration
avrdude: error at hardware/tools/avrdude.conf:384: programmer type not specified


any ideas? Ive spent a fair amount of time getting all the packages and compiling avrdude just to hit a roadblock now.

you may want to post to the arduino.cc forums, since they're in charge of the software packages!

Did you install the "libusb-dev" package? I ran into exactly that error message when I compiled my own version of avrdude. It issued a warning message when it couldn't find the library headers, which got lost in all the info scrolling up the screen, but built a binary anyway--without usb support! I got just what you're getting.
