Installing HG on Raspbian Buster using gdebi

For anyone installing HG on Raspbian Buster via the gdebi package using this method

sudo gdebi homegenie_1.3-stable.4_all.deb

You will find errors with the install and the process halts. It appears that the installed version of Lirc is causing the problem.

To overcome this execute the following in the terminal

sudo apt remove lirc

Once you’ve done this execute this again

sudo gdebi homegenie_1.3-stable.4_all.deb

This should resolve your issue and HG should be available on port 80.
