You don't need /dev/lirc, at least here on a recent Debian : udev creates /dev/lirc0
which is the device you need to use.

Maybe it's a typo when writing this mail, but maybe not, so the right make option is:
NO_KBD=1 , and not NO_KBG=1

On Debian , /dev/lircd is a socket , you need to use the character device, which is /dev/lirc0
So try --lirc=/dev/lirc0 --no-kbd

| No other messages in the log but still not doing anything when I hit keys on the remote :(
| any ideas folks??
Try out the suggested changes and let me know if it's better.
