1. I cannot get past the first step of your instructions. When I open a terminal and enter ./autogen.sh, I get a file not found error. The only copies of autogen.sh I can locate on my system are in kernel-related folders. I take it I need to download the source files for lirc first, right?

Yes.
 
2. I downloaded lirc-0.9.0.tar.bz2, but there is no program associated with that file type. How do I open it? What do I do with it?

tar -jxf lirc-0.9.0.tar.bz2

I downloaded the file to ~/Downloads. Is that OK?

3. What folder do I need to be in to run autogen.sh?

The folder that was created from step 2 (lirc-0.9.0 in your example).

I changed directories to ~/Downloads and ran "tar -jxf lirc-0.9.0.tar.bz2". I then changed directories to lirc-0.9.0 and tried to run autogen.sh but there is no such file. I do see a bunch of files intended for compiling, but not autogen.sh. What went wrong?
