I'm trying to install the USB Serial Drivers in Mac OS X Yosemite in order to communicate my CY8C-049-42xx to my computer and develop some applications using the USB Serial Communication. So I downloaded the drivers from the page of Cypress  Serial Software development:

And the I installed the libusb 1.0.9 from the zip, and I follow the installing instructions from the READ ME.txt, but  it seems that I have the following error:

MacBook-Pro-de-Martin-Ortuno:~ martinortuno$ cd Desktop

MacBook-Pro-de-Martin-Ortuno:Desktop martinortuno$ cd CyUSBSerial_SDK_Mac

MacBook-Pro-de-Martin-Ortuno:CyUSBSerial_SDK_Mac martinortuno$ cd mac

MacBook-Pro-de-Martin-Ortuno:mac martinortuno$ cd library

MacBook-Pro-de-Martin-Ortuno:library martinortuno$ sudo make


gcc -fPIC -o libcyusb.o -c cyusb.c -I ../common/header

In file included from cyusb.c:20:

./CyUSBCommon.h:28:10: fatal error: 'libusb-1.0/libusb.h' file not found

#include <libusb-1.0/libusb.h>


1 error generated.

make: *** [all] Error 1

MacBook-Pro-de-Martin-Ortuno:library martinortuno$ 

I've been looking for information about the posible solution to this error, but I didn't have any success at all.

I will appreciate any help or advice that you can bring me.



P.S. If it's needed I am attaching the details about the installation of the libusb and the error of the driver installation.
