Sorry, still struggling with this one.

 

Here’s some more info:

 

I noticed that

Did make uninstall, make clean, reboot and new ./setup.sh from lirc 0.7.2 source directory.

 

 

cat /var/log/lircd gives me:

 

Aug 23 11:52:32 Mythbox lircd 0.7.2: lircd(bw6130) ready

Aug 23 11:52:35 Mythbox lircd 0.7.2: accepted new client on /dev/lircd

Aug 23 11:52:35 Mythbox lircd 0.7.2: initializing '/dev/usb/hid/hiddev0'

Aug 23 11:52:35 Mythbox lircd 0.7.2: unable to open '/dev/usb/hid/hiddev0'

Aug 23 11:52:35 Mythbox lircd 0.7.2: caught signal

 

But looking at /dev reveals that the usb/hid directory doesn’t exist. There is, however, a /dev/usb/hiddev0 node

 

I tried strating lirc with the –d=/dev/usb/hiddev0 argument, but still get the : unable to open '/dev/usb/hiddev0' error.

 

lsusb shows that the device is being picked up and recognised on the usb bus:

# lsusb
