I am trying to install this module ESC/POS Hardware Driver But giving this error except_orm: ('Error', u'Unable to install module "hw_escpos" because an external dependency is not met: No module named usb.core')

Any one can help how to install it??

##Remove existing Ubuntu/Deb usb app
sudo apt-get remove python-usb

##Since all versions of pyusb are either alpha or beta you must declare a specific version. 1.0.0b2 was the latest at this time.
pip install pyusb==1.0.0b2 

##QR Code is the next requirement
apt-get install python-qrcode

Hopefully this will save everyone a ton of headaches.
