back in the days when I was using Ubuntu I could use my remote control just fine. I'm on Arch since 1.5 years and it came back to my mind that I actually have a remote control for my laptop (Acer Aspire 5920G). :-)
The proper modules are loaded. And I can see a device in /dev/lirc0.
$ lsmod | grep lirc lirc_wpc8769l 6119 0 lirc_dev 11472 1 lirc_wpc8769l
I can also see pulses and spaces with:
# mode2 -d /dev/lirc0 space 50 pulse 2700 space 850 pulse 450 ...
xmode2 doesn't work because of FS#30912.
Unfortunately when I fire up lirc I can't see any key-presses in irw.
# cp /usr/share/lirc/remotes/acer/lircd.conf.Aspire_6530G /etc/lirc/lircd.conf # lircd -n -d /dev/lirc0
Also generating a new lircd.conf errors out before I'm able to set the button names.
# irrecord -d /dev/lirc0 /tmp/lircd.conf.Aspire_5920G ... irrecord: could not find gap. irrecord: gap not found, can't continue
I also tried to irrecord other remote controls, but I always get the same error. So I think there is something wrong with the module. There were no upstream updates of lirc in quite a while and there are quite some patches in the lirc ABS.
Has someone else experienced this or is there something I can do to debug it?
Thanks in advance!
Edit: I just tried to Wake-on-CIR from S5, works like a charm. So the hardware is ok I guess.
