No installation issues.
Started wifi-radar from menu, asks root password, then shows all Wifi connections in my neighbourhood with the channels these are using. Looks the same as I get with inssider on Win10.
OK for me.
Sounds like Wifi Analyzer on my Android tablet. Cool.
Validating. Advisory in Comment 1.
