Ubuntu 18.04


Recommended Posts

Just done a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 ( corrupt SSD drive).

Tried to install flirc from the download section. Extracted files  Flirc and Flirc_util.

Not sure what to do with them. The info at the end of the download section for Linux indicates some dependencies and putting the above files in usr/local/bin maybe.

   Needed Dependencies: libhidapi-hidraw0 libqt5core5a libqt5network5 libqt5xml5  libqt5xmlpatterns5  libhid qt5-qtbase qt5-qtsvg hidapi
     cp the 99-flirc.rules rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/
     optionally copy flirc_util and flirc to /usr/local/bin/

Not sure what this means, can you explain in more detail please
