@INC, use linuxgpib Can't Post

Hey all, So I'm having some trouble using my National Instrument USB-GPIB cable to do some testing at work, I'm fairly new to the perl language but can manuver around fairly well.

So I guess my main problem is when i try to compile my testing code i get the following errors

Can't locate in @INC (@INC contains:
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at line 10.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at line 10.

Which I'm certain is because the lib "linuxgpib" is not in the location it looks for the library. My first step was to look for the linuxgpib library which i found at the following

downloaded and unpacked, the problem is I do not see anything called linuxgpib inside this unpacked file as well I'm not sure I can tell my program to look at this new directories for the lib

Here is the first few lines of code

use lib "$ENV{HOME}/Filters"; 

use LinuxGpib;
#use hp34401a_subs; #qw(init_dmm); can't get these to work!!!ARGH
#require Erins_perl_stuff; #qw(do_nothing);
use Graphics::GnuplotIF qw(GnuplotIF);

my $device1="AGILENT-34401A"; # name from /etc/gpib.conf addr 21 thermometer
my $device2="AGILENT-34411A"; # name from /etc/gpib.conf addr 22 sample
my $dev1 = LinuxGpib::ibfind($device1) ||
die "Can't open device $device!\n";

Does anyone have any suggestions of what i should try next?

There needs to be a file called (note the correct upper/lower case spelling!). Are there no pm files in the software you downloaded?

How did you do the installation of the Perl part? There seems to be a binary part of the library (i.e. which needs to be compiled). You didn't get any error message from the installation procedure?
