  1. Hi everybody! I use Linux Mint and Flirc SE. I sucessed turn off the computer with keyboard combination and command line. Is it possible turn on the computer? When I turn off the HTPC, the blue led is lighting. So it get power. Any ideas?
  2. Tried following the instructions here: https://flirc.tv/ubuntu-software-installation-guide for the generic installer, first on my desktop/server running Linux Mint 17 (Qiana) MATE: $ sudo apt-get install flirc Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package flirc My distro is getting old, so I tried it on a PC that has a more up-to-date version: Mint 18.3 (Sylvia) MATE. Same thing. Can somebody give me a hand? Thanks!
  3. As title says. Haven't been able to use Flirc for aeons as no .rpm installs available. Even went to bother of converting the deb file with alien but that just produces transaction check errors from file conflicts. You really do need to change product and website information to supporting Ubuntu only and NOT Linux.
  4. I'm a very experienced Linux user. I'm trying to set up Flirc on Ubuntu 17.04 to eventually control a Fire TV. Downloaded the app, installed all the necessary i386 libs (my OS is 64-bit), set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to point to the downloaded libs, and this allowed me to get past all the dependency errors. However, if I run the flirc_util status, I get: device disconnected, can't run command I've verified that I'm running it as root, so perms shouldn't be a problem. lsusb shows: Bus 001 Device 009: ID 20a0:0006 Clay Logic In dmesg, I see: [484407.027688] usb 1-
  5. hi, i just updated to the 2.3.9 package and noticed an extra generic man page being included in /usr/share/doc/flirc/Flirc.1. please see attached image of the formatted/rendered man page. seems a generic bit unintentionally included in the package. thanks, -matt
  6. The Flirc executable in the "Universal Static Package" is 32 bits - which requires messing with 32 bit libraries. Suggest to add 64 bit version.
  7. Hey guys! Are there known bugs to the Flirc-SE (Streacom Edition)? Windows 10: Unable to shutdown or boot the PC (Kodi 16.1) Linux (LibreELEC LibreELEC-Generic.x86_64-7.0.2.img): Unable to shut down or boot the PC + Flirc-SE is now totally locked after i pressed the power-off button unresponsive because the up, down, left, right and select (enter) button got deleted, does not take any more commands by the remote even after power off, reboot ... There is USB power on the Flirc-SE, cables are correct connected, updated latest firmware in Windows 10. Is this a known behavior or is my hardware dam
  8. Hi all I have a Flirc SE (for the Streacom cases). On my current OS installation I can't get the Flirc GUI to recognize the Flirc board as connected. It always says "disconnected :(". This is regardless of whether or not I run it as root. The flirc_util happily programs the Flirc board, i.e. "flirc_util record up" works and records a key for the "up arrow"-keypress (and this keybinding works afterwards). This is without running flirc_util as root. It gets a bit bothersome to record keys with the flirc_util, so how should I get the GUI to recognize that the Flirc board is connected? My current
  9. I am running Raspbian Jessie on a RPi 2 and have my Flirc device plugged in. This device works 100% fine under OpenElec as well as RasPlex. I've verified through /var/log/syslog that the device is recognized but I do see the following error: Jul 9 20:21:46 raspberrypi kernel: [ 453.014807] usb 1-1.4: new low-speed USB device number 7 using dwc_otg Jul 9 20:21:46 raspberrypi kernel: [ 453.129171] usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=20a0, idProduct=0001 Jul 9 20:21:46 raspberrypi kernel: [ 453.129201] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=0 Jul 9 20:21:46
  10. There are a number of situations where you may want to configure/control flirc from the command line rather than the GUI. For example, XBMCbuntu is made to boot directly to XBMC without ever displaying a desktop environment. You may also like to be able to modify your flirc configuration via ssh without interrupting an XBMC session. In this tutorial I'll cover some basic steps for getting started with flirc from a command line. INSTALLATION First, we'll install the flirc software. To do this, you need to add flirc to your apt-get sources. You can do this with any text editor. Easiest
  11. I'm trying to upgrade my current FLIRC package using the following command rpm -Uhv flirc-1.2.6-2.i386.rpm and it produces the following error / conflicts Preparing... ################################# [100%] file / from install of flirc-1.2.6-2.i386 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.2-19.fc20.i686 file /lib from install of flirc-1.2.6-2.i386 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.2-19.fc20.i686 file /usr/bin from install of flirc-1.2.6-2.i386 conflicts with file from package filesystem-3.2-19.fc20.i686 is this the latest
  12. 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 permissi
  13. Hello flirc community. I'm having some trouble with my flirc, and I'm posting here in desperation. I purchased this IR repeater some time ago, and have been using it with great success with flirc on a windows vista machine running xbmc. I recently upgraded my htpc, and switched to linux in the process. I programmed the flirc first without the repeater, and it worked fine. I then moved the htpc into my media closet, cleared the configuraiton and programmed it again through the IR repeater. Flirc records the buttons, but refuses to repeat them. The repeater does still work on my 5.1 receiver
  14. Hi everyone, just got my flirc yesterday, and i am having some troubles with it.

  15. 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 sl
  16. Hi Everyone, Here is my gear! thanks ;) Moutaz
  17. See also: Since at least February 10th (i.e., more than a month!), the apt repo has been broken, 404ing. For those of us that purchased the device new, this makes the Flirc very difficult to use properly. Although the binaries are available, the udev rules that are apparently required to make it work without root access are more difficult to find. Thanks, - Patrick
  18. Hello, on Linux, there is a specification for supporting 'Media Player Remote Interfacing' [http://specifications.freedesktop.org/mpris-spec/latest/]. Very many Linux Media Player really adhere to this specification (e.g. vlc, banshee, rhythmbox). Sometimes, a plugin is needed, for example XMBC needs http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Add-on:MPRIS_D-Bus_interface . It would be very cool if Flirc would support MPRIS 2.2 on Linux. I guess that this would beak down to the following: Provide a special keyboard layout in the Flirc application the could map the MPRIS functionality. Pro
  19. I'm curious to know if anybody running XBMCbuntu (or any other Linux setup) has successfully programmed a Logitech Harmony remote for full functionality. I installed the Flirc GUI within XBMCbuntu, which seemed to record the basic functionality. I had to use the terminal command line to record advanced keystrokes. Within XBMC, however, I get almost no real functionality. Only the directional buttons "work," and that is occasional and usually scrolls in whatever direction it chooses, regardless of the actual input. I think the problem may be in the device or activity setup within the L
  20. using the `xev` program on both my media center machine (laptop running mythbuntu 11.04) and my ordinary machine (desktop running vanilla ubuntu 11.10), I can see that: On the laptop only, sometimes pressing a button normally will cause repeated events to be sent until the next button is pressed (after which *that* button may be stuck on indefinitely). At other times it's fine, but it often seems to get stuck in this mode - i.e once a keypress starts repeating, future key presses probably will too. With the same flirc, remote & config, running on my desktop, I have not been able to g
