while I got the basics up and running, I'm stuck in the details :-(.
My remote looks pretty much exactly like:
Since it also has a sticker with "A415-HPG" sticking in the battery case, I
chose the Hauppauge_350 section for my remote definition
in /etc/lircd.conf, and removed the other entries (I've tried the
A415-HPG-A model setting as well..).
Now, if I press a number, I can see this number in an xterm on my KDE3
desktop, no problem. I can control kaffeine rudimentarily (e.g. with the
numbers, but NOT with channel up/down buttons), volume up/down and mute
modifies the master mixer in kmix and "power" really shutdowns the system
BTW, irw doesn't do anything at all. Without lircd, it simply says "connect:
Connection refused", and with it running, it doesn't show anything at all.
Terminate irw, and the xterm does show the numbers I'm pushing again.
Note, all this only works, as long as irkick does NOT run. With irkick
running, pushing buttons on the remote does nothing at all, consequently
the irkick button push animation is missing (in earlier setups with kdetv
and different hardware/remotes/OS 4-5 years ago, I got it working fine,
Choosing irkicks setup shows "Hauppauge_350" in the left pane (remotes and
modes). I've tried to define a "TV" action to start kaffeine with the KDE
Program Launcher, but given the facts above, nothing happens.
After studying all docs/faqs/issues, I could find, I'm running off the
ideas, on what to try next.
The most nearby hint, I've found in:
stating, that "This guide is depreciated. Configuring Lirc for Hardy Heron
is slightly different than before. New guide coming soon for Kubuntu and
Ubuntu". Of cause something changed, but this all happend deeply under the
covers and I seem to be unable to get this working well for my needs.
Some enlightment is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
