I just got my remote control working, but some of the buttons do things I don't like (e.g. the button with a Windows logo on it opens my default music player, the OK button doesn't do anything). How can I change which commands are mapped to which buttons and map specific commands to buttons that do not appear to have anything mapped to them?
The program you use for remote controls is typically lirc (Linux Infrared Remote Control). Here is a link to some of their documentation on setting it up, http://www.lirc.org/html/configure.html It can be pretty involved, depending on what you want to do.
