I would like to install lirc on my raspberry pi 3B+. Unfortunately there is an error message when installing with apt-get.

I just reinstalled raspbian using Noobs to avoid any problems due to changed settings or other installed packages and only executed sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. So without changing anything else, installing lirc with sudo apt-get install lirc -y gives the following output:

Any ideas, why the installation crashes and how I can fix it?

Thanks a lot for any help!

  • ,I ran "sudo apt-get install lirc -y" without any problem. My config is rpi3B+, stretch 9. I never and did not connect any IR hardware. – tlfong01 Jul 9 '19 at 5:24
  • TobiasM, your error msg is lircd failed "Result: signal", I know nothing about signal, so I have no idea how to troubleshoot. Good Luck! – tlfong01 Jul 9 '19 at 6:30

  1. sudo apt-get remove lirc
  2. sudo apt-get install lirc
  • Please elaborate a bit on why you think that would solve the problem. – Bex Nov 29 '19 at 8:19
  • Although there is no way for you to know this, someone else posted this as an answer as well, then deleted it because it turned out the problem was not solved. However, it is still something that may have worked for others in a similar context. – goldilocks Nov 29 '19 at 14:39
