I just moved over to 10.10 this weekend after having been on Fedora for years. Everything works just fine - except my remote control. I can't seem to get it working, despite having gone through all I know.
On Fedora, there was a lirc tool called mode2 that let me see the codes in a term. window
just to see if anything was actually getting into the socket. Anything like that on Ubuntu?
This ain't worth going back to the instability of Fedora to get working but it would be nice if I didn't have have to bring down code and compile in a patch. That's not very "linux for humans."
