hi all -
i'm having a darn hard time setting up LIRC.
1st off i'm not even sure if what i'm trying to do is possible.

  I bought a logitech cordless laser (lsusb shows it as "Logitech, Inc. LX710 Cordless Desktop Laser")
And i'm trying to get it to receive commands from my Apple remote (came with my macbook pro. NB: i'm trying to use the remote on a generic PC with ubuntu 9.10)

running the GUI for infrared remote control was detecting a logitech receiver. but now it only sees 'linux input device power button and sleep button'.

any advice?
