I have installed lirc, and I want to use irexec to control my music player daemon (mpd) using
mpc commands from my mce remote control. Works fine, except for one thing:
If I want to edit the
/etc/lirc/lircrc file to map the remote control buttons to commands, I need to reboot in order to read in and use the edited lircrc button/command definition file. To test things out is then a rather painful and time consuming experience.
does NOT do the trick, it just makes the remote stop working. Function returns after reboot.
What elese needs to be restarted? Or should I use some other method?
