Flirc with raspbian

Recommended Posts

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

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!

You shouldn't need to do anything in the system. Flirc IS an USB HID keyboard (at least it acts as one). You need to use Flirc software first to record button presses from the remote and assign them to specific keys.
