    Curious Flirc-er
  1. To summarise for posterity get Flirc SE to turn on / off your mac os X hackintosh In Terminal type to open flirc_util /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources/flirc_util record power If that fails with error "dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib" In Terminal type to copy the library to the required place sudo cp /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/libusb-1.0.* /usr/local/lib/ If that fails with the error "cp: directory /usr/local/lib does not exist" In Terminal type to create the /local/lib folder, as you may not have one sudo mkdir /usr/local/lib Then repeat the above steps - copy the library, then run the record power. Tested and working on a OS X Yosemite Hackintosh with Flirc SE
  2. Hi Yawor, thanks. So flirc_util is inside the Flirc.app package. I get there by either 1) Go Applications / Flirc, Right Click, Show Package Contents, Go Contents / Resources / flirc_util; or 2) the same in Terminal: Open Terminal and type /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources/flirc_util. With either method, running flirc_util returns the following error. dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libusb-1.0.0.dylib Referenced from: /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Resources/flirc_util Reason: image not found Trace/BPT trap: 5 I then followed the instructions on this thread http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/841-mac-flirc_util-embedded-in-flircapp-cant-find-libusb-100dylib/#comment-6791 to try to add libusb-1.0.0.dylib to the required folder cp /Applications/Flirc.app/Contents/Frameworks/libusb-1.0.* /usr/local/lib/ Following that method I get this error. cp: directory /usr/local/lib does not exist I'll be honest I'm a little out of depth using Terminal commands. ... Edit: Worked it out! See below.
  3. Hi I'm aware that Flirc-SE can turn on the computer from the Off position. I am uncertain how to configure this. I have read various forum threads for other OS e.g. "flirc_util.exe record power" e.g. here http://forum.flirc.tv/index.php?/topic/1887-power-onoff-wont-work-with-flirc-se-and-openeleckodi/ But I cannot work out how to apply similar functionality for my setup. My setup is Flirc-SE on a hackintosh running Mac OS X Yosemite with a no-frills remote control from my amplifier/receiver. Here's what I've done. 1) Installed the Flirc SE hardware, connected to USB, Motherboard and Power 2) Run the Flirc mac gui app 3) Recorded various keys. Including to record the On / Off buttons on the remote vs the Controllers > Full Keyboard > Wake button, as per the instructions here https://flirc.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/200904676-Getting-flirc-to-wake-up-your-computer 4) Tested. All mapped keys work. Wake from Sleep functionality works. On from Off functionality doesn't work. I'm confident I've missed a step, but can't work out where. Can anyone please assist?
