  1. OK so the above command works and my flirc generates Ctrl+P when I press the appropriate key on the remote, but here's what's weird. The key doesn't show up when I type "flirc_util settings", but an index (in this case, 3) is skipped. Here's the output: flirc_util version v1.2.6 [v1.2.6] Firmware: v2.6 Settings: sleep detection: Disabled noise canceler: Disabled inter-key delay: 4 state: 0 builtin profiles: Enable Memory Info: keys recorded: 10 keys remaining: 159 memory used: 6% Recorded Keys: Index hash key ----- --------- --- 0 1F4078A3 > 1 5F190E7C < 2 DF5224B7 * 4 148C61EE next_track 5 DF895EFB next_track 6 D467F8DB prev_track 7 1FCEF6C8 prev_track 8 404078A3 play/pause 9 DF3B78A3 stop
  2. I finally figured it out. I was using the ascii key, p, for the second argument to flirc_util record_api. I should have been using the IEEE HID code, 0x13 = 19 (base 10), which I got from this post: which lead me to the HID codes here: http://www.freebsddiary.org/APC/usb_hid_usages So to set a key to generate Ctrl-P, the correct command is: flirc_util record_api 1 19
  3. I would like to program one of my remote's keys to generate Ctrl+P, which I believe should be possible using flirc_util's record_api command with arg1 = 1 for Left Control and arg2 = p. But when I type this command, I get the message: hit a key on the remote to be paired with 1 0 (Note the 0, not P) If I then press a remote key and then test the result using xev, I find that the key only generates Ctrl_L up/down events. No P. This is with version 1.0.6 on Mythbuntu 13.10 saucy. I have been able to record over 60 keys using "flirc_util record char", including pageup/down, return, space, etc. I just can't get Ctrl+P. I also noticed that "flirc_util settings" doesn't show the ctrl key in the list of recorded keys, although the count of recorded keys increases after I record that key.
  4. Found this link: http://askubuntu.com/questions/107230/what-happened-to-the-ia32-libs-package I was able to get a list of the needed shared libraries using the "readelf" command and started installing some. But it's time consuming to find the package name that provides the desired shared library, and I wonder if the ABIs will be compatible. So I'll manage with flirc_util for now.
  5. Doesn't exist on this distro, but it's a good hint. I'm now looking for an alternative.
  6. Just want to say "Me too". I'm running Mythbuntu 13.10 saucy x86_64, upgraded from Mythbuntu precise 12.04. I am logged in as root when I try to execute ./Flirc, but I get the following error: -su: ./Flirc: No such file or directory But the file is there and if I type: # file ./Flirc I get: ./Flirc: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.0.0, not stripped But if I try to check what shared libraries it needs with the command: # ldd ./Flirc I get: not a dynamic executable I don't have any 32 bit executables to compare to, but running "file" on the typical 64 bit executable says: <filename>: : ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.24, BuildID[sha1]=<long hash code>, stripped Perhaps executables built against GNU/Linux 2.0.0 cannot run on distros using GNU/Linux 2.6.24? FWIW, I just downloaded the zip file 1.0.6 last night, which was dated Dec 18 01:57. flirc_util works, for the most part, more details in a separate thread. HTH
