Hei, I just got HP RGS 7.6.1 and wanted to install the receiver on my Ubuntu 18.04 machine.
But when I install with the command
% sudo dpkg -i rgreceiver-linux-64_220.127.116.1138-2_amd64.deb
I get the following error
(Reading database ... 452916 files and directories currently installed.)
Preparing to unpack rgreceiver-linux-64_18.104.22.16838-2_amd64.deb ...

This package is to be installed on rhel7_sle12_ubuntu14_ubuntu16. Please, note: you can override Linux distribution check by setting the environment variable RGS_INSTALL_IGNORE_VERSION_CHECK=1.

I have tried
% export RGS_INSTALL_IGNORE_VERSION_CHECK=1
But that does not help
Does anyone know how I can install the receiver on Ubuntu 18.04

You have to install it using the root user.
Switch to the root user using:
sudo su -
dpkg -i rgreceiver-linux-64_126.96.36.19938-2_amd64.deb (without sudo, because you are already root)
Worked for me unser Ubuntu 18.04
