Subject:WiSpy on Kubuntu

I must have taken leave of my senses! In a moment of madness, I've replaced my old Slamd64 (64 bit Slackware) install with the latest Kubuntu (7.04 64 bit), and I can no longer get WiSpy tools to work!

I get the following errors:

2006-09-R1:

xxxxxxxy@xxxxxxxxxxx:~/wispy-tools-2006-09-R1$ ./wispy_gtk
USB capture child process exited!
xxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxx:~/wispy-tools-2006-09-R1$ Unable to claim interface 0 -- are you root?
Is something else using it (another program or the kernel HID)?
Using terrible hack to try to detach from the Linux HID...
This might not work at all

(hangs at this point - ctl-c to exit)
Slamd64 used to produce a similar error, but the hack worked on that!

SVN:

config.status: WARNING: Makefile.in seems to ignore the --datarootdir setting

xxxxxxxy@xxxxxxxxxxx:~/wispy-tools$ make
Makefile:86: .depend: No such file or directory

xxxxxxxx@xxxxxxxxxxx:~/wispy-tools$ ./wispy_gtk
X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169

X Error: BadDevice, invalid or uninitialized input device 169

Failed to open device
debug - calling planar new
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


Under svn, the window opens after the "failed to open device" message. I can select the device from the drop-down window, but when I try to enable it, the whole thing seg-faults.

I would send the core dump, if I could work out where Kubuntu dumps it - evidently not in the same place as slamd64!

Any help much appreciated!
