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.

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

Hi there,

facing the same problem (on libreelec). Does anyone know, how to add the missing libraries?
