http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have a marmitek x10 remote controller that I had been using in opensuse. However I decided to upgrade my distro to fedora 12. I setup everything that I need to for mythtv however Im unable to get the remote to work. IRW doesnt return anything yet I know the driver is working as irrecord picks up the input. here are the steps Ive followed... 1) I can see the usb device ok.... > lsusb Bus 001 Device 004: ID 059b:027a Iomega Corp. Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 003 Device 003: ID 0bc7:0005 X10 Wireless Technology, Inc. Wireless Transceiver (ACPI-compliant) Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c505 Logitech, Inc. Cordless Mouse+Keyboard Receiver Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub 2) I know it uses the atilibusb drivers, which Im able to prove by doing the following: > irrecord -H atilibusb ~/lircd.conf When I press keys on the remote I see the input is received on the screen. 3) I manually start lircd.... > lircd -H atilibusb 4) when I try irw, I dont get any output what so ever....... I did modify my /etc/sysconfig/lirc however I had been trying gnome-lirc-properties to see if that could get it working, so Im not sure if its applied a wrong setting in the config file. (HowTos)
