  1. You basically answered your own question already. Flirc works as a keyboard so the solution should be obvious. You need to map your remote key to some keyboard key using Flirc software if it isn't mapped already and then map it to script using keyboard.xml.
  2. Have you tried new 3.0 beta firmware already?
  3. Which exactly version of the software are you trying to install? Current stable 1.2.6 should work under 12.04 but I'm not 100% sure as I don't use Ubuntu anymore (I've switched to Arch Linux quite some time ago).
  4. @teedoe sorry, as I've mentioned before I'm not using SMS-style input at all. When I really need to write something outside of XBMC then I just use a wireless keyboard. I just pointed it out that there is such functionality in EG as I've stumbled upon it checking what plugins are available.
  5. @teedoe this has nothing to do with the Flirc itself. The software presented in the thread you've linked in the fist post is a 3rd party one, written by the NJKA (the author of the thread you've linked to). If you need such functionality you need to contact with the software author himself or find another solution. You probably could use EventGhost software as it has a plugin to do SMS-style text input but you need to do some work configuring it. I'm not using this plugin so I can't tell you much about it.
  6. Can you provide logcat from the device? Reboot the device so the logcat will be smaller, connect Flirc and then dump the logcat.
  7. What version did you have before upgrading to 2.5? There were some firmware changes that broke backward compatibility but it was a long time ago if I remember correctly.
  8. MCE Remote addon is for MCE IR receiver. It won't work with Flirc.
  9. Which version of firmware and GUI are you running? Did you set up Flirc XBMC profile on the Harmony itself?
  10. Does the normal USB keyboard work with the stick?
  11. Could you use English? I don't think that there are many people here speaking German who can help you.
  12. I'm wondering how the protocol for the touchpad looks in this remote. Is it IR only or does it also have RF? I see that the remote itself is discontinued.
  13. Flirc is using flash memory to store all its settings so it doesn't loose its settings when disconnected from the power. Can you test your Flirc with another computer for a couple of days to see if it also looses its settings?
  14. Have you tried other USB devices on this new computer under Linux? Maybe the problem is with the motherboard hardware and not with the receiver itself. Flirc works by emulating USB HID keyboard so it SHOULD work as long as a normal USB keyboard also works.
  15. It's not an IR remote. It uses 2.4GHz RF to communicate with the receiver. You can't use it with flirc.
  16. You need beta GUI app which contains beta firmware.
  17. It should work as long as you are able to find enough unused keyboard shortcuts to cover whole remote. I've used it that way with EG myself.
  18. I'm glad I could help :). As for the problem with recording buttons on your laptop it could be a problem with USB voltage level. Flirc can also be susceptible to some lighting conditions in the room (depending on the light source type).
  19. You tried it already on different computers so the problem is probably with your Flirc. Maybe try contacting Jason via private message. Your post is in wrong forum so maybe he haven't noticed it yet.
  20. I would not recommend using mce profile with flirc. I'm using Samsung TV code but Panasonic one should also work.
  21. Actually you don't need to learn from MCE remote. You can set up Simple 4 remote with MCE setup code using simpleset.com website :) (at least european URC-6440 can be set up this way, I think there was some strange problem with OARUSB04G). I'm also actively working with experts from http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/ which is a community of EUI/OFA remotes modders (these remotes can have very advanced features) on supporting these new "SimpleSet" (like Simple 4) remotes and I think that we will release something really soon. The software we are working on allows to edit remote's configuration in much greater details. As for 3 you can always use some kind of script or software to map mouse movements to specific keyboard shortcuts and map those shortcuts to remote buttons.
  22. You are running old firmware and gui. You can upgrade firmware from new version of the gui (menu File -> Advanced -> Force FW upgrade). There is always a question that if everything works OK for you then is there a reason to do upgrade. If it works for you don't break it :).
  23. 1. As long as you can associate script with a keystroke it will work. But remember that you can't associate the script with keystrokes from the Flirc only so pressing the same key combo on a normal keyboard with also run the script. 2. You can't disable Flirc, but you can always make a script that will capture all mapped keystrokes and block them. This will of course also disable the same keystrokes on a normal keyboard. If you want the more advanced solution which I'm using I can help you with the setup, but it's on your own risk. Also this method requires that the GhostEvent is always running in the background as in my solution Flirc no longer acts as a keyboard. If you are interested please contact me using private message when you decide to buy Flirc because I would like to keep it not public for now (I need to test it more and wait for Jason's firmware changes to see if it breaks it or not).
  24. Hi, Can you expand the "Keyboards" section in device manager? When Flirc is connected you should have one keyboard more than when it is disconnected.
  25. How does this behave when you connect a normal keyboard to the Ouya? Are you able to move around with cursor keys? Please remember that Flirc acts as a keyboard so Ouya probably is expecting text input from the keyboard as opposed to the method used when text is entered using gamepad.
