[ubuntu] irexec /etc/lirc/lircrc problem

http://ubuntuforums.org – I was reading about lirc (lirc.org/html/configure.html), which describes /etc/lirc/lircrc as the "configuration information of all clients in one place." So I wrote a simple lirc bind in /etc/lirc/lircrc which launches xbmc when I press a button on my remote: Quote: begin prog = irexec button = KEY_HOME config = xbmc end It works when I run irexec in a terminal. I was going to add irexec to my startup applications, but then I noticed the lirc init script for ubuntu starts irexec if /etc/lirc/lirc exists. (Hardware)
