Hello I'm new to USBProxy and I'm trying to get it up and running on my BBB.
I've followed all of the steps I've been able to find across the web but I
still seem to me missing something.

My most recent process is
- install OS image from
- flash to device
- apt-get upgrade, update, install (libusb, cmake etc.)

apt-get update and upgrade is a good thing to do, but unfortunately
installing libusb from the repositories is the cause of your problem.

We use a specific version of libusb to work around devices that
automatically get attached to a kernel driver. This means that you
need to use the version that was installed on the BBB OS image that
was published.

At both failures I get the error message
"Error sending control request!"
"Unable to connect to device proxy."

This sounds like you don't have a USB device connected to the BBB.

On a somewhat related note, do you know of any good gadgetfs reference

There really isn't any documentation other than this:

I get the impression that the kernel developers would like to see
gadgetfs removed, but we can't work as easily with the replacement
