Report Linux And Windows Differences in General Questions Posted March 14, 2014 I had downloaded the right files for the right platform. But thanks to the last line of your last post ("$ sudo ./Flirc"), I realized that my user was not part of the "sudoers". So although the Flirc GUI program would start and say that the Flirc module was connected, there was no menu available. I remedied the problem with the following (in case someone else encounters the problem). Open the sudoers list by opening a root terminal window and using the visudo program to edit the list like so: # visudo Find the line that has "root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL" and copy it right below itself changing the word root to your username so it looks like below: # User privilege specification root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL username ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL Now save your changes and restart the Flirc GUI program in a user terminal window with the command below. My desktop is KDE so I use "kdesudo". You might need to use "sudo" or "gksudo" for Gnome desktop, it depends on your system. $ kdesudo -u username ./Flic Once the program is started, click File -> Advanced -> then click the button "Force FW Upgrade". After a minute or so, "Firmware v2.3" will be displayed on the bottom left hand corner of the window. MrNice, I wish you a good life, you certainly made mine better today.
