View Full Version : [ubuntu] IR Reciever working - irw will not load...

November 3rd, 2008, 09:44 PM
I have an IR receiver from irblaster.
I have loaded the lirc_serial using the User-space I2C driver.

I use the setserial commands as described elsewhere.

When I run

sudo mode2 -d /dev/lirc0

I get a nice response from my remote - so I guess that it is working.

Bu I can not get irw to work. Sometimes I get a

connect: Connection refused

other times I just get nothing.

I don't know enough about this stuff - What needs to be in place to to get this stuff running ???

is it ok to use the User-space I2C driver ??
I'm using a imon remote - other remotes work also

Thank you
