Howto configure LIRC for usage with kernel 3.X ???
I hope that there are experts out there who managed to configure lirc so that it can be used for my multimedia-computer.
I have an Imon PAD RC which works pretty well with K2.6.34 (spup050), Lirc-0.87 (including mouse movements).
Beginning with K2.6.35 the driver went into the kernel so my old working configuration could no longer be used.
With evtest I could find out that the RC sends events to event8 (so it is not defect) but I did not manage that xorg uses these events for mouse movements. All these recommendations in the internet do not work for me. (I tried lirc with devinput, lircmd with uinput, eventlirc ...)
Is there someone out who have this application running ? How did you solve this ?
Having read tons of forum contributions about it (without making any progress) I found recently a trivial solution:
For Slacko 5.7: By pressing the mouse/keyboard button on my RC-Imon-Pad (see picture) I could switch the lirc kernel driver into the mouse operation mode I was looking for. Now I can move the cursor with the mouse-pad on the RC, simulate left and right mouse clicks. Exactly what I was looking for. A second press leads to the keyboard version again. I didn't notice that before. After a quick investigation I can say that not all previous releases show this behavior. Of course it is mandatory that the RC is recognised by the lirc kernel driver.
For key assignments I actually prefer inputlirc over lircd. Maybe I'll write some future experiences about the remote control of application software for Puppy.
