Download latest PyUSB from :

http://sourceforge.net/projects/pyusb/files/PyUSB%201.0/1.0.0-beta-2/pyusb-1.0.0b2.tar.gz/download

Place file “pyusb-1.0.0b2.tar.gz” on your desktop

gunzip <pyusb-1.0.0b2.tar.gz |tar xvfp -
cd pyusb-1.0.0b2
sudo ./setup.py install

Make a new python script with the following code — don’t forget your #! line

Save the file,  change permissions and run.

We now know the name of our USB device and we can write an if/then line in our script to give the usb port location (filename) to our Hex/Serial code in order to speak with our Satellite USB device.
