Yesterday my FLIRC dongle arrived - yeah! I tried to install FLIRC on elementary OS, which is based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It's supposed to remote control the DVB-T Card. It is only for switching channels and volume control. It would be the last step on my way from Windows to Linux.
For the latest FLIRC software the package "libusb-1.0-0 (>= 2:1.0.12)" is needed, but you can't upgrade to a version higher than "libusb-1.0-0 (2:1.0.9~rc3-2)" under Ubuntu 12.04. LTS
Would be great
