Ver 7.1 feeding Flightradar24

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 -"  


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_GB.UTF to en_US.UTF, and keyboard layout from default gb to us

Would it be possible to feed ADSBexchange too? I’m on Ubuntu 20. TIA.

ARM64 or AMD64, I mean on RPi or on PC

The adsbexchange feed client is automatically compiled when you install it so it should run on pretty much any debian based linux:


Looks like

wget -O /tmp/
sudo bash /tmp/

did it


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

Works great!

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)
