Yesterday I upgraded my 64-bit partition with Kubuntu 10.10 to 11.04 and cannot get lirc to work.  Seems a bit similar to my problems discussed last week with 32-bit Fedora 14 on another partition of the same desktop.  One difference is that there is no /dev/lirc0 with Kubuntu.  No output with ir-keytable -t.   As I had the old kernel available (2.6.35-28-generic) I rebooted and lirc worked!  Rebooting with the new kernel 2.6.38-8-generic and trying to apply what I learned last week with F14:  Deleted /etc/lirc/hardware.conf and the irremote tweak in /etc/udev/rules.  Rebooting there was no lircd anymore, so added a script to load /usr/sbin/lircd before KDE.    Now I got output with ir-keytable -t though!

Loading irexec -d and irxevent -d but the remote is not working with either kernel.  What about the /etc/lirc/lircd.conf?  With my present one the remote is called linux-input-layer, uses for 1  0x002, for 2 0x0003, for 3  0x0004 etc.  Substituting with 0x1e01 etc did not work.  Changing remote name to rc-hauppauge-new did not work (also for ~.lircrc).  There is something I am missing here.  Help needed, please
