    problems with LIRC

    Anyone else have problems with lirc.

    i have a remote control and i can only use couple of buttons.
    when i use irw it doesn't show normal things it use to..
    also when i check the syslog when running irw get message failed to initilise hardware. the remote has worked on every release just not this one so far.

    syslog

    That's probably what the problem is, there are quite a few packages that needed updating, and they probably haven't finished yet.

    the problem with gnome-lirc-properties with python 2.7 errors is not related to the problem i was having with lirc.

    after searching for an answer i have finally solved the problem with my remote control using another guide from these forums.

    if you check post #5 which holds the answer to the problem.
    apparently it is to do with the way the kernel handles the input device of the remote and now uses imon.
