Just hacked together this script for downloading and/or installing RMIR/RMDU/RMPB on Linux. Just download, make executable (chmod +x setup.sh) and execute (or double click). It downloads the most recent RMIR distro, unpacks to /usr/local/rmir, calls the contained setup.sh, and set up desktop files and links froim /usr/local/bin. The way I like it Wink . Alternatively, if given one argument, that argument is assumed to be a ZIP file containing the RemoteMaster-*bin.zip file to be installed.

A wrapper is installed that makes the programs use freedesktop-compatible locations for the property files and the error file.

If anyone finds it useful... Cool

The announcement thread for RMIR says
Quote:
To install RMIR for any OS, first unzip the installation package to a new folder that is not read-only.

There are reasons for this. There are features in RMIR that will not work if the installation folder is read-only. One such feature, for example, is that it will not work with XSight remotes. I do not regard this as a defect and have no intention of fixing it. Bengt (Barf) and I have different philosophies about such things. Feel free to use this script by all means, but be aware that there are some features that will not work.
