Has anyone had success feeding FR24 with the new FlightAware Version 7.1?
Yes, it is possible. I have done it.
It depends what image you are using.
If it is Piaware SD Card image, or Raspberry Pi OS image, use this bash script
sudo bash -c "$(wget -O - http://repo.feed.flightradar24.com/install_fr24_rpi.sh)"
If it is 64-bit image, you will have to first add architecture armhf by following 2 commands:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture armhf
sudo apt update
Now run the above bash script.
Ok, it’s now up and running, many thanks for your help. Noted previously I found that on my keyboard the “ and @ keys are swapped and once that was corrected the script ran just fine. Please note that I removed the space in the script immediately after the character O.
Thanks for your help! Does this need to be run in any specific directory? Also, when I type the “ character my output gives a @ character. Is there a way to correct that?
Does not matter from where you run the script. The location of installation is pre-coded in the package being installed., and is independente of location from where script is run.
Change language from default
en_US.UTF, and keyboard layout from default
Would it be possible to feed ADSBexchange too? I’m on Ubuntu 20. TIA.
The adsbexchange feed client is automatically compiled when you install it so it should run on pretty much any debian based linux:
wget -O /tmp/axstats.sh https://adsbexchange.com/stats.sh
sudo bash /tmp/axstats.sh
Just out of curiosity, what is the architecture of your PC ($ uname -m), and how did you install dump1090-fa and piaware on it?
Architecture of my PC: x86_64
I followed your instructions from Package Install of Piaware ver 7.2 on ARM64 / AARCH64 and AMD64 / x86_64 Machines
You cannot install FR24 feeder by running their bash script which I have posted in my first post above, as it is for Raspberry Pi (armhf) package only.
However you can install their Linux Debian package amd64/x86_64 on Ubuntu 20 x86_64, by following command:
scroll right to see and copy this long command in full
sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.25-3_amd64.deb
sudo fr24feed --signup
I’m getting this message when I run sudo dpkg -i fr24feed_1.0.25-3_amd64.deb
You don’t seem to have any dump1090 installed. On the fr24feed start it will automatically install dump1090-mutability.
Just ignore this message. This is a bug in their package which fails to detect dump1090-fa.
(1) Edit file
fr24feed.ini and make entries as shown in screenshot below.
abcd@ubuntut20:~$ sudo nano /etc/fr24feed.ini
(2) Save and close file
(3) Restart fr24feed:
sudo systemctl restart fr24feed
NOTE: Make sure when you configure fr24feed, NEVER use receiver=“dvbt”
If by mistake you use receiver=“dvbt”, the fr24feed will install dump1090-mutability which will mess up your install by conflicting wih dump1090-fa.
Yeah, no problems here - I’ve just done two fresh RPi installs; setup FA first and then installed FR24.
Thanks a lot! Everything’s work well!

At least as of 2/27/2022 (on a Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W)
Dumb – Apparently the date wasn’t being set correctly on my Pi, and thus the errors . Leaving this here in case someone else encounters a similar problem.
Once Date/time were set correctly, all the installs seem to go fine.
Hi, I’ve got a stock standard Flightfeeder kindly provided by Flightaware.
Looking at FR 24 I notice it doesn’t show many flights in my neck of the woods.
I would love to feed FR24, but I know absolutely ZERO about “programming” on the Flightfeeder.
Is there a very basic and simple step by step procedure somewhere so I can do that?
You need a separate Raspberry pi, the flightfeeder can’t be modified.
(the flightfeeder can provide the raw data via network so you don’t need another SDR / antenna)
