Linux [Linux] How to install flirc software and update firmware from the command line
jjst replied to digitalb0y's topic in How ToSolution's up there: Basically, the issue is that the latest version of Flirc relies on a newer version of libusb than the one shipped on most distros. As a workaround, you can download, compile and install libusb yourself, and force Flirc to use that instead. For ubuntu users (tested on precise/elementary luna): Download libusb from here, extract it, open a terminal and cd to that folder to compile the lib: $ cd <path_to_libusb> $ sudo apt-get install build-essential libudev-dev # You'll probably need these if they're not installed $ ./configure $ make $ sudo make install Once that's done, cd to the folder where you've extracted Flirc and run the program by overriding $LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to where the newer version of libusb got installed: $ cd Flirc-v1.2.2-x64 $ sudo su # env LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/usr/local/lib/ ./Flirc Flirc should now start without issues.
