failed to run command
Just a hint:

during remove or install of either stable or nightly version, installation modifies /usr/local/bin.
If you try to run pilight-receive, you'll get 

Quote:failed to run command (...) Permission denied

One can cure that by
sudo chmod 755 /usr/local/bin
Works fine here:
# apt-get install pilight

Didn't double-check, but I installed pilight-firmware, also.
Thumbs Up
