    How do you setup infrared remote to work on Banshee?

    How do you get an Infrared Remote to work on Banshee?


    I have already installed lirc. (sudo-apt-get install lirc). It is working perfectly with XBMC Frodo 12.


    In Banshee, I have went under Edit > Preferences > Extensions and put a check mark in Infrared Remote Control.


    I am using Ubuntu 12.04 (64 bit) with GNOME Shell 3.4 and using Banshee 2.6.1.


    I am still unable to use my infrared remote on Banshee.


    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Ok, I found a solution.

    gksudo gedit ~/.lircrc

    and paste the following:
    begin
    prog=banshee
    remote=mceusb
    button=KEY_PLAY
    config=play
    end

    begin
    prog=banshee
    remote=mceusb
    button=KEY_PAUSE
    config=pause
    end

    begin
    prog=banshee
    remote=mceusb
    button=KEY_STOP
    config=stop
    end

    begin
    prog=banshee
    remote=mceusb
    button=KEY_AGAIN
    config=previous
    end

    begin
    prog=banshee
    remote=mceusb
    button=KEY_NEXT
    config=next
    end

    Also, the following links were useful:
