  1. Solution'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.
