If you have not already fixed your problem, try this:
Start lircd in nodaemon mode.
lircd -n -d /dev/lirc /etc/lircd.conf
After it starts you should see a message:
lircd 0.7.1-CVS: lircd(bte) ready
If you are seeing something other than "bte" as the lircd driver, that means
you are using the wrong lircd binary. Check and make sure you don't have
any other versions floating around. Also try running the lircd binary from your
build directory: lirc/daemons/lircd
I had this problem on my Gentoo 2.6.9 box. I had the gentoo lircd
installed in /usr/sbin/lircd. To fix it, I did a 'make uninstall' in
my CVS lirc build dir, then reconfigured with the --prefix=/usr and
did 'make install'.
Also since you are using the T68i, you can get access to 1 additional
button, the menu button (just below the Yes button). The standard
lircd.conf does not have this button mapped. On my T616 mapping that
button doesn't work, only on my T68i. Anyway, just add this line to
Hope this helps,
