I just installed 14.04 Trusty Tahr (Beta).
When running XBMC (Gotham nightly build) on in and using my LIRC remote control I noticed that only the arrow keys and Volume keys (including mute) work. All the other keys don't.
It's a standard MCE remote control, and the receiver is connected by USB. I got them both in a package and the remote control was manufactured by Linksys and the receiver by HP (or at least so it's written on them).
I tried testing the configuration by running
gnome-lirc-properties but it won't start (missing module
glade, and still missing it after I installed glade).
Then I tried testing for inputs by running
irw but it also won't run because it is looking for configuration files or stream files that aren't there. The same goes for running
lircd, which I find weird as I saw the remote is partially working, meaning there is something there that reads its inputs.
What else do I need to check and/or how can I configure the default IR support that came out of the box?
