LIRC - problem with setup [SOLVED]

I have installed LIRC both on a Raspberry Pi and Linux Mint 17.3.
According to the man page for irrecord:

Under the section " PROTOCOL PARAMETERS AND TEMPLATES" it shows the use
of irdb-get command to download a remote template.

On both systems (Raspberry Pi and Linux Mint) irdb-get results in command
not found.

Either its in a different package, not installed on my system or I'm doing something wrong.

I'm using an LG disc player handset AKB72033902 I cannot find a template for my handset on

Where is irdb-get or what do I have to install?
Thanks in advance

Ok, I have solved this. The version of lirc installed on Debian Jessie
and Mint is lirc 0.90 released in 2011.

The new configuration-tools:

have been introduced in version 0.94, will mark as solved.
