libhid-dev dependency in Ubuntu[edit]

It might be a good idea to mention that mphidflash on linux depends on libhid-dev on Ubuntu, which is no longer supported and so it's no longer included with newer Ubuntu releases. suggested installing from an older package:

$ wget
$ wget
$ sudo dpkg -i libhid0_0.2.15+20060325-2.2ubuntu1_i386.deb
$ sudo dpkg -i libhid-dev_0.2.15+20060325-2.2ubuntu1_i386.deb

This depends on libusb-dev which can be obtained in the usual way for Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install libusb-dev
