http://www.linuxquestions.org – I am trying to get a remote controller running on my slack64 13.1 machine and need some guidance. I know the computer sees the remote because of the steps below. I also understand I need to put a config file in the /etc/lirc folder. The remote controller is Dell RC1974009/00 (Dell MR268) with USB receiver and as far as I know, is built by Philips. Look at http://www.techexcess.net/mr268-dell...974009-00.aspx The lirc website does not have lircd.conf file for this remote. I checked in the philips & dell subdirs. So far here's what I did: Load lirc_mcdusb & lirc_dev modules using (HowTos)
