I am trying to configure my remote. The good news, is that it "Just worked". Meaning: I plugged it in, ran the gnome-lirc-properties and now I can control some parts of my desktop with it.
It seems, though, that it is not lirc handling it. I have killed lircd. It does not show under ps:
ps faux | grep ir #shows a few processes, like firefox, but nothing like lirc(d), irw, irrecord etc.
The device is still active thought:
sudo cat /dev/lirc0
Pressing buttons on my remote make it print all sorts of strings.
Pressing buttons on my remote actually control Gnome/Unity/Desktop. E.g. Volume up and down make the volume go up and down, mute works, the "windows-button" fires up banshee and so on.
What is reading out my remote? And how can I configure that?
