I just downloaded wispy from here:

I just needed to install the development pagckages and ran ./configure, 
make install and everything compiled in a few seconds.

I tried to run the program, however I do not wispy unit and the program 
just gave a message that it could not find the device on the USB bus.

Are you having errors compiling?  Or running?
