I use Ubuntu 10.10. Please Can someone help me? the remote control is the only component that does not work with Ubuntu.
@Martin many thanks for your answer and excuse me for the delay.
i have test the Lirc driver ITE8709, but it not working properly. I add my result with the lirc in official repository.
lino@lino-Studio-1537:~$ lsmod | grep -i lirc lirc_ite8709 6328 0 lirc_dev 11209 1 lirc_ite8709 lino@lino-Studio-1537:~$ dmesg | grep -i lirc [ 17.698130] lirc_dev: IR Remote Control driver registered, major 249 [ 17.740420] lirc_ite8709: module is from the staging directory, the quality is unknown, you have been warned. lino@lino-Studio-1537:~$ sudo mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 mode2: could not get file information for /dev/lirc0 mode2: default_init(): No such file or directory
And the command cat /proc/ioports | grep -i lirc produces nothing.
Long time ago i have read end test this thread in Ubuntu forum and I had more results. I've downloaded the file for dell 1535 and all commands entered above give me positive results. Except irw that not working.
i think that the problem is in the driver ITE8709. I hope that someone can help me to solve this problem.
