    Remote won't work with Lucid need help with irexec

    I tried using this post to get my soundcard to work:

    http://art.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=2476075

    I get the following error when trying to run irexec :


    justin@rEd:~$ sudo irexec
    irexec: could not open config files /home/justin/.lircrc and /etc/lirc//lirc/lircrc
    irexec: No such file or directory

    What I have is a Toshiba Multimedia Center sound card, which is really an Creative Labs Sound Blaster Live! External via usb. I know the sound card's IR port is showing up in Ubuntu by getting response when I run "irw" in a terminal. Here's what I get when I press button on the remote:

    justin@rEd:~$ irw
    0000000000000084 00 up Creative_SBL
    0000000000000078 00 left Creative_SBL
    000000000000008a 00 right Creative_SBL
    000000000000007e 00 ok Creative_SBL
    000000000000007c 00 touche8 Creative_SBL
    000000000000007b 00 touche5 Creative_SBL
    0000000000000070 00 touche2 Creative_SBL
    0000000000000074 00 touche1 Creative_SBL

    Anybody know how to fix the error with "irexec"
    ? I've tried to make a .lircrc file in my home directory but I don't know what to put in it. I tried putting the code from this site starting with "begin remote" and stopped with "end remote" in the code. I've also tried using all of the code... I dunno... ANY ideas?

    I've got it to work by modifying the file of .lircrc . Now I get this:


    justin@rEd:~$ sudo irexec

    irexec: unknown token "stop" in /home/justin/.lircrc:34 ignored
    irexec: unknown token "step" in /home/justin/.lircrc:35 ignored

    which tells me that it's running, but the code format is off....
