mplayer LIRC support

Postby mala88 » Wed 12. May 2010, 21:49


I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 10.04 and was able to get irserver running and working for mythtv, however, the remote does not work on mplayer. I created a sym link from ~/.mythtv/lircrc to ~/.lircrc and the same lircrc file used to work perfectly on 9.04.

Any ideas on how to make mplayer connect to irserver and recognize the remote commands?

Here are the error messages from mplayer:

Code: Select all
Setting up LIRC support...
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support.
You will not be able to use your remote control.
