    Flirc Sleep/Wake again!

    I had it working...I logged my steps here
  2. Here is how i got my Harmony Smart Control and Flirc to suspend and wake up my HTPC Linux Mint box. Note: make sure you are connecting your Flirc to a consistently powered USB even if the PC is powered off, to choose one; power off your pc and connect your mobile on the desired USB port and make sure your mobile is charging with the box turned off. 1- Download Flirc latest Linux GUI from here (i used the zipped x64 version). 2- Add the file 51-flirc.rules to /etc/udev/rules.d/ (download the file from here), this udev rule insures that the GUI can connect to Flirc without root permissions. 3- Unplug then Plug your Flirc or restart your box for changes to take effect. 4- extract the GUI tools and run the file named Flirc(might need permissions update), you should now see the GUI and the title bar should says connected. 5- Upgrade your Flirc settings and flash it to the latest FW version using the GUI tools, from File -> Advanced, do the following: enable sleep detection. enable noise canceler. enable built-in profiles click on force FW upgrade. 6- by now, you should have no problems running XBMC with flirc and Harmony or any other remote. 7- locate two free buttons on your remote that will be used to wake and suspend your box. 8- follow the steps from 2 to 6 mentioned in this great post (Flirc will apear as 'Clay Logic'). 9- Unplug then Plug your Flirc or restart your box for changes to take effect. 10- Re-lunch you GUI tool and switch to the Full keyboard view. 11- Record the wake on the remote on the Flirc virtual keyboard. 12- Record the suspend button on a combination of your choice (that does not conflict with XBMC's default map!), i used Ctrl+Del. 13- create the file ~/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/suspend.xml with the following content (change the mapping to your preference in step 12) <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <keymap> <global> <keyboard> <delete mod="ctrl">XBMC.Suspend()</delete> </keyboard> </global> </keymap> 14-restart XBMC. 15- if everything went fine, you should now be able to suspend/wake your XBMC box. 16- you can expand the functionality to Gnome by adding the same shortcut to as a keyboard shortcuts to call 'sudo pm-suspend' (need to switch to sudo with no password) 17- using Harmony software i added my wake and sleep buttons to be executed when powering on/off activities or switching between them. Hope this helps, let me know if you need more details! Happy Flircing!

    Flirc Sleep/Wake again!

    Thanks DEADPOOL for your reply: 1- actually i didn't program any button to make it work, i just installed the ready made XBMC profile for the Flirc dongle. 2- yes, i have tried pressing any button, no luck. i wanted to add that i made sure that Flirc is inserted to a constantly powered USB port. i still have no luck!

    Flirc Sleep/Wake again!

    Hi Everyone, i can't seem to get Sleep/Wake feature to run on my HTPC using Flirc and Harmony Smart Control, i have XBMC installed on Linux Mint 16. here is the steps i followed: 1- i have updated Flirc's firmware to 2.3 which is the latest version. 2- added the Flirc XBMC profile on the Harmony Smart Control. 3- started my HTPC and XBMC would boot automatically. 4- nice surprise!!! everything is working like a dream, now press the "off" button on the harmony...nothing happened (except other devices went off) the HTPC is still up. 5- used the harmony remote to let XBMC go to sleep (using menus), the HTPC slept with no problems. 6- pressed the power button on the Flirc Harmony profile (using the mobile app) the HTPC won't wake from sleep. 7- using a physical keyboard, i could get the HTPC to wake up with any key press. now, am i missing something? thanks
