Using that, pressing an up-arrow on the remote works the same way as pressing the up-arrow on a keyboard. If this is the case or you want deeper control over the configuration then use inputlirc. The lirc distribution contains an example rule which makes the lircd-uinput device writable for users in the group lirc. If you’re using the devinput lircd. By design the repeat parameters can’t be set in an atomic way during input device registration so this option is prone to race conditions. If lircd fails to configure this automatically it can be done manually:.

Even if you have an IR device, you might see something like this if the kernel sees it as a keyboard rather than a remote. Take a note to the final decision.

Linux input layer driver

Besides this, the only way to be sure is actually inspecting he sources. Use this instead in the -c option to let lirc-config-tool make it’s work.

First you have to download and install Lirc. The third field confused lircd, causing it to ignore these keys; removing the 0xBED7A9ED from each line fixed it. When you’re done, press dev/inpjt.

kernel requirements for lirc (/dev/input/)

The other is to use the –effective-user option. If there is only one device of each kind the link is stable after reboots. If you don’t have a lirc package in you distribution or in my case a buggy version, it’s pretty easy to compile lirc from source:.

Let me know if you figure it out so I can fix mine: In this mode, lircd is started as root but drops privileges before actually processing infrared data. But the vast majority of buttons should use standard symbols. Please improve this page if you can. Also, since the service runs as part of your session, it can access the display, sound system etc.


You are not directly subscribed to this bug’s notifications. Note that you can’t just use an empty config file; irrecord appears to need some global values from the config file’s header in order to capture the remote’s signals.

This can set the time between the keypress dwv/input and the first repeat event and the time between each repeat event. If there are buttons which are not mapped no key symbol you might not be able to fix this unless you go for the lirc driver option to change the key symbol is pirc possible, but probably not what you want here.

If it does not exist you have to build the staging drivers, also outside the scope of this document. MCE remotes are IR remotes that split into two main categories: When using multiple remotes lircd tries to sort them so that the ones which decodes faster are used first.

As long as you have only one remote of each kind lic can use simple name matching like in. This should work out of the box with the following limitations:. See the bottom text at the link I previously provided. By design the repeat parameters can’t be set in an atomic way during input device registration so this option is prone to race conditions.


LIRC – Linux Infrared Remote Control

You have already determined the driver and device to use which is verified using mode2. In general, finding out what module to blacklist is not always easy. Text on this page is available under Attribution-ShareAlike 3.

When lircd not runs as root, it needs read and write access to the kernel device it communicates with.

Such conflicts shows up as dmesg output about not being able to open the involved device, plus various other symptoms. I’ve only briefly played with fixing it, but haven’t got the hang of it yet, so I can’t give any more specific advice for you.

The lirc-setup tool can be used to run mode2 with different dev/inpuf and devices in a GUI environment. If the remote don’t work it is always a good idea to reconfigure lirc package by choosing one of those 2 generic value for the receiver option:. So, while the kernel built-in handling works out of the box in many cases, there are still scenarios when LIRC is the right tool. Getting the key symbols using linux input layer Linux input layer driver.

This way has security problems since running arbitrary commands and scripts as root is generally a bad idea.
