    KDE 3.5 + Lirc + IR Blaster


    Hello everyone I have rigged an IR Blaster that came with MCE remote and I would like to use is in Slackware 11.0.

    I have rigged the ir blaster to the internal IR pins on my motherboard. When I go into KDE control center undr >Peripherals>Remote Controls.

    It says on that tab that There are currently no remote controls available. You must first setup LIRC correctly; see lirc.org for more information.

    My Question is, is Lirc actually installed, or do I have to install it?

    When I have the Remote Control settings page open it shows an icon in the sys tray which says irKick. From that, I am assuming that LIRC isnt installed and what I am seeing is just a program called irKick.

    I don't think lirc is installed by default. You will have to install it yourself. Instead of installing from your install CD, I would suggest going to http://www.lirc.org and downloading the latest version and compiling it your self (i.e. configure, make, make install).
