Yes Yes Yes!
I am very, very thankful for your advice. Yes installing the usb lib did the trick! Perhaps I am dense, but I read/reread the info on installing the openOCD and didn't see anything about this anywhere.. if it was there then I apologize for my inability to see it.
Knudfl, I want to tell you that since I have been trying to really dive deeper into linux as of late, I have been extremely impressed by the helpfulness of many with deep knowledge. I thank you again, I am not sure I would have found this without many, many, more hours (or days) of hair pulling.
