Follow up: After lots of googleing and looking, the answers were here in front of me: On a raspberry pi : thd (trigger happy daemon- I love the name) can be started to run on /dev/input/event0 (in my case) and trigger programs that will run (like socket UDP in my case). See the man pages for thd I could never get it to work as a keyboard, I must be missing something.....how is that done? It works great!
Greetings: I would like to use a FLIRC as a input to a program that I have written on a Raspberry PI running raspbian. I can see the device in DMESG but can not seem to find it in the /dev file system. There is no output relating to FLIRC with lsusb. Has anyone used a FLIRC with a Raspberry Pi NOT using XBMC or the like? Any help would be great! Thanks, schenkl
