How do I get "flirc_util" on openelec?

Recommended Posts

Hi ... i want to install flirc_util on openelec ... so i can record buttons via SSH (i'm using an internal flirc_se - so removing and programming in windows is not an option).

Had a look at the wiki but they only mention debian and rpm installations ... any pointers for doing this manually please on openelec?

Cheers!

Update 1 - actually i guess I can just download http://downloads.flirc.tv/release/cli/flirc_util/linux/flirc_util ... chmod 777 ... and happy times - will try later have to go out now!

Update 2 - ok so the above "worked" only issue was that the link above doesn't host the latest version of flirc_util (the one there didn't support fw v3.6) - anyway ... I couldn't find a mirror hosting the latest ... resorted to getting the latest deb file and extracting flirc_util from within ... now it works.

updating just in case others need the info.

You can also go to Beta firmware forum and download package with latest RC version. It should contain files for all supported OS-es.

I'm trying to do this same thing and I am having issues...

I have downloaded the latest stable release of the software from the downloads page and moved flirc_util over to the openelec box.

I've chmod 777 the file, but when i try to run the command i get a "not found" error even though it appears to be there:

OpenELEC:~/.config/flirc # ls -all
total 2984
drwxr-xr-x    2 root     root          4096 Feb  7 13:09 .
drwxr-xr-x   15 root     root          4096 Feb  7 13:09 ..
-rwxrwxrwx    1 root     root       3046817 Jan 27 11:34 flirc_util
OpenELEC:~/.config/flirc # flirc_util
-sh: flirc_util: not found

Any ideas?

Thanks

Chris

Anyone find an easyish way to get this working?  Looks like the latest versions are dependent on external libs, which are not super straight-forward to get on openelec...

 

TV:~/2.5.6 # ./flirc_util 
./flirc_util: error while loading shared libraries: libhidapi-hidraw.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
