Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04 both have libusb-1.0 along with the legacy

I believe libdc1394 uses libusb-1.0.

I am not so sure what your problem is. But the claim is correct.
libusb-1.0 and libusb-0.1 can co-exisit without any issue. Your
issue lies somewhere else.

Did you use libusb-0.1-compat? I hear that it has some issues
with libftdi.
