I'm trying to test it right now on my Linux PC with Ubuntu 14.04, I'll let you know as soon as as it finishes installing. However I must point out that on https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/flash-tool-lite-user-manual it says only Ubuntu* 12.04 LTS 64 bits supported. I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks, Peter. I must confess I'm not always the best at reading instructions and did not notice the spec of 12.04!
FTL was only tested with Ubuntu 12.04, if you want to give it another try then the best way to fix it is to purge and reinstall properly the FTL package by doing :
- sudo apt-get purge flashtoolite (if package not found, look for it with “sudo apt-cache search”)
- reinstall FTL .deb package

I actually had a similar issue to yours.
But I followed the steps bellow:
1. dpkg --get-selections | grep -v deinstall
To check all the installed packages.
You should be able to find a line like this:
2. sudo dpkg --force-all -r phoneflashtoollite
To force remove phoneflashtoollite
3. sudo gdebi phoneflashtoollite_22.214.171.124_linux_x86_64.deb
To install the FTL package.
4. Press the down key until OK is red highlighted and press enter.
Thanks, Peter, that worked. I think the trick for me was not the removal, but using the command line installer (rather than double-clicking in the GUI).
Great, I'm glad to hear that it's working for you now.
