    Request for a noob LIRC HOWTO on Ubuntu Lucid

    Hi All,

    I am a complete noob to LIRC and I'm trying to get it setup to control XBMC. I have found the following HOWTO on Wiki but I can only get as far as the "Configure Lirc to understand your remote's commands" and I get lost. Where do I go from here? I have searched the forum but theres nothing specific to what I need to know.

    I have the following:
    Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx
    Logitech Harmony Remote 550 (preset with MCE commands)
    XBMC 9.10

    Even better if someone has a similar setup and its possible to copy and paste the codes into a config file of some sort, could someone please post their own setup? This might save me from going through a long winded setup using the ugly terminal

    I have already posted the same question on the XBMC forums

    Please help am really stuck.

    Hi All,

    Please help. I've been using the following WIKI HOWTO but I'm stuck after I type root@ubuntu:/etc/lirc# irrecord --driver=irman --device=/dev/ttyS0 mceusb into the terminal I get the following:

    Code:
    jamie@ubuntu:~$ sudo -s
    root@ubuntu:~# cd /etc/lirc
    root@ubuntu:/etc/lirc#  irrecord --driver=irman --device=/dev/ttyS0 mceusb
    
    irrecord -  application for recording IR-codes for usage with lirc
    
    Copyright (C) 1998,1999 Christoph Bartelmus(lirc@bartelmus.de)
    
    irrecord: could not open /dev/ttyS0
    irrecord: irman_init(): Input/output error
    irrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check permissions)
    root@ubuntu:/etc/lirc#
    Can anyone help me with this??
