 However, there is still one problem:  the lirc mouse.  I used to start it with this script, but it does not work anymore:

#! /bin/sh
/bin/sleep 5
sudo modprobe uinput
sudo /usr/sbin/lircmd --uinput

I understand there is a change but have not understood what I should do.  To apply "/usr/sbin/lircmd# instead of the above script does create /var/run/lirc/lircm but the mouse does not function either.

I am guessing that I would try to change your lircmd.conf keys from say "2" to "KEY_2" for "MOVE_N" for a start.

If you get it working, let us all know how.


Thanks Douglas, but no, cannot get it to work.
