Hi all.
A couple of months ago I got a Raspberry Pi, messed about with it for a bit and ultimately went with OpenElec which has been serving me well.

I bought a Flirc usb dongle so I can, hopefully, hook the system up to my new Harmony 650, but I'm having issues installing the software.

I have SSHd (via my Mac) onto my openelec


then opened '/etc/apt/sources.list', without sudo as it seems I don't need it. The file was empty, but it did open. Then when adding “deb apt.flirc.tv/arch/x64 binary/” and trying to save it, it says "error writing /etc/apt/sources.list: No such file or directory"
but if there is no such file, how did I open it in the first place?


So, what am I doing wrong, and what should I do next? I would guess I'm missing something very simple or have misunderstood what I can and can't do via openelec.

Any help would be great, cheers.

Well, in terms of the Flirc I was being an absolute idiot. I have that sorted now after installing the software on my Mac. What a clown.

However I am interested in the above, knowing what I can, can't do via SSH with Openelec, cheers

You can't install Ubuntu/Debian packages in OpenELEC.

I have an ASUS Chromebox with Openelec 5.0.8 (Kodi 14.2), Flirc Dongle and the Harmony 650 remote. Works flawlessly and installation was plug-and-play.

Only thing I had to do was setup the Flirc as a device, in Harmony Software, but that goes without saying...
