lirc remote control


  1. Download/build lirc (obtainable from slackbuilds - lirc)
  2. install lirc
  3. figure out the serial port (mine is /dev/ttyS0)


  1. figure out the controller lircd.conf file - lirc configs
  2. get things working:
    1. either start lircd
      # lircd -H creative -d /dev/ttyS0
    2. or start irrecord to map your buttons to the keys
      # irrecord -H creative -d /dev/ttyS0 conf-file-name


  1. configure ~/.lircrc to map keys
  2. as your normal “user”, start irexec, which will interpret the IR commands to actual system commands
