Bengt, you have posted an installation script for RMIR in Linux but as far as I can tell, there is no such script for IrScrutinizer. There is a Windows installer but not a Linux one. There is the AppImage that works just by double-clicking, but that is not an installation and it does not appear as an application to Linux. Am I missing something?

Here you go.

I am not aware of an "Inno Installer" for Linux. Despite of that, Linux users tend to hate installers... I think the current procedure (download, unpack, execute setup-irscutinizer.sh) is not that frightening, though...

But I am open to suggestions. Flatpak I have not evaluated yet, possibly you...

So do I - I didn't realize I was a natural born Linux user Wink . I am not wanting an IrScrutinizer installer, I was just curious as to why there wasn't one.

That is of course also the procedure with RMIR, yet you want an installer for that. I know you want it installed in a read-only folder, but for me the biggest issue with that is as follows. Almost every time a user has problems, we say "upload your rmaster.err file for us to look at - you will find it in the RMIR installation folder". With RMIR in a read-only folder that becomes ""upload your rmaster.err file for us to look at - its location depends on your OS and the installation procedure you used and is probably buried deep inside some nested folder so good luck trying to find it".

Wrong thread. I am not going to bite...
