Cannot run samples on OS X

Would appreciate some help. Just received my Orbbec Astra. Followed the intructions in the ‘read me’ file. When I try to run, for example, the simple hand viewer, I receive an error (see below). If someone is able to give me detailed instructions on how to solve this, I would surely appreciate it . . . OS 10.10.5 Yosemite

Hey @wmackwood, have you installed libusb? It’s not mentioned in the docs unfortunately but is required. Try brew install libusb and hopefully that gets you running. You can take a look at my (very similarly named) thread for some more info: Can't run samples on OS X - #3 by josh

Hello @mattfelsen, that’s got it! Thank you so much. I can sleep now.
