This is a C-based development library for the Lightstone, a Biometric USB device distributed with the Journey to Wild Divine Relaxation Software (http://www.wilddivine.com)
liblightstone is released under the BSD License.
A Tale of Two Libraries
liblightstone comes in two flavors: Win32 and libusb-1.0. The Win32 version uses direct Win32 DDK calls to access the windows HID system, and reads raw reports from there. libusb-1.0 works for all platforms currently supporting the library. As of this writing (late December 2009), the libusb-1.0 version of liblightstone has been tested on OS X and linux.
Library Requirements (For Compilation)
CMake (Required on all platforms) - http://www.cmake.org
WDK (Windows Only) - http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/WDK/default.mspx
libusb-1.0 (All non-windows platforms) - http://www.libusb.org
To build liblightstone, make a subdirectory in the source dir (called whatever you want), then go into that directory and run "cmake ..". This will generate the project files for your platform (makefiles for OS X and linux, visual studio for windows). For more information on project generators, look at the cmake documentation.
Notes on Compilation and Usage
Mac OS X
Assuming you have not installed the Journey to Wild Divine software and are not installing the dmg version of liblightstone, you will need to install the "Lightstone OS X Extension" in order to use the lightstone on OS X.
Simply copy the LightstoneNullDriver.kext bundle included with the package to the /System/Library/Extensions directory and reboot.
The VID/PID pair of the lightstone will need to be blacklisted on linux in order to use liblightstone there.
