This week I got a IR keyboard with trackball and mousebuttons on a
flee-market. There was no receiver to go with it, though. Is it worth
the trouble of trying to get it working with lirc ? Or is that a
hopeless / endless path?
I am new to LIRC, now I have a question about making cordless keyboard
work on embedded system.
My board has an IrDA receiver connects to a GPIO interface, what kind of
LIRC driver and kernel module should I use to drive the IrDA interface?
I think I will need an IR keyboard driver, how will the keyboard driver
interact with LIRC driver? Or Do I actually need LIRC if I can make the
IR keyboard driver work on Linux?
Any suggestion will be appropriated, Thank you in advance.

IR Keyboard protocols are surprisingly complex. They send a key-down
and a key-up signal, typically.
You could get it working with lirc, but it would be tricky. More
involved than simply learning the codes, at least.
