    libreadline6 is not available in ubuntu, it would be best to update the package to use libreadline8, or libreadline5 which seems to be available still.

    This may have been taken care of with 3.25.4 (if I could download the package I would check myself) but if not could you please add it to the todo list for 3.25.5.

    The /usr/bin/Flirc gui works just fine, but others may want the command line.

  2. The manual https://flirc.gitbooks.io/flirc-instructions/content/installation/linux-installation-guide.html

    says to add this to your sources.list file to be able to download the .deb packages

    deb http://apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64 binary/

    This is incorrect. The correct setting, which is hidden inside the install.sh script is more like this

    deb [trusted=yes] https://apt.fury.io/flirc/ /

    Please can you get rid of the incorrect information and point people to the correct location for the install.sh which is 'http://apt.flirc.tv/install.sh' as explained here https://flirc.tv/ubuntu-software-installation-guide
