This issue seems to be back around. I'm running a clean install of Mythbuntu 12.04.3 LTS. When I run Flirc (sudo or as myth-user), here's the results that I get: me@my-myth:~/Flirc-v1.2.2-x64$ ./Flirc ./Flirc: error while loading shared libraries: libQtSvg.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory The results from lsusb: me@my-myth:~/Flirc-v1.2.2-x64$ lsusb Bus 002 Device 019: ID 20a0:0001 Clay Logic ... The results from flirc_util: me@my-myth:~/Flirc-v1.2.2-x64$ ./flirc_util version Warning: cannot open USB deviceWarning: cannot open USB devicedevice disconnected, can't run command Reading up on my issue, I tripped across a thread elsewhere where the person mentioned that the Flirc dongle & interface still worked on Win vX, so I tried it there & it worked. I was able to load some commands and save the profile. Plugging the Flirc back into the MythBuntu box produced no response; nothing at all. So what do I do about this to get Flirc (hardware and software) working on this MythTV box?
