I have Pinnacle's Analog TV PCI card with remote (IR) controller. I want to use this remote controller to control XBMC.
I've read that I need LIRC daemon so I installed it (sudo apt-get install lirc) and selected Pinnacle Systems PCTV (pro) reciever as Remote control configuration (during LIRC setup). For IR transmitter I selected none (AFAIK I don't have it). Now the problems arise (cut out):
Setting up lirc (0.9.0-0ubuntu1) ... ls: cannot access /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/staging/lirc: No such file or directory * Loading LIRC modules [ OK ] find: `/sys/class/rc/*/': No such file or directory * Starting remote control daemon(s) : LIRC [fail]
sudo ln -s /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/staging/media/lirc /lib/modules/3.2.0-23-generic/kernel/drivers/staging/lirc
but it doesn't work.
How to make use of this remote control before I throw it out the window? :)
