Found 2nd Mar 2010
Am trying to configure a remote on a PC which i will not name, i get to the point when i need to alter a hardware.conf file nd it all goes wrong!!

Mine doesn't look the same so i have to edit it to look the same, but when i try and type either nothing, or strange things, happen. I think when i press 'd' it deletes the line, and 'u' seems to be undo and there's a few more, obviously i'm doing something wrong!! Anybody feel like helping me, it's doing my head in

which text editor are you using, dounds like your using vi in which "dd" deletes a line and "d4d" would delete 4 lines, try using nano, its an easier to use editor, so on cmd line nano hardware.conf

out of interest what distro you using?

sudo vi /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

Should i do

sudo nano /etc/lirc/hardware.conf ?

xbmc distro, think it's based on ubuntu

What remote you trying to configure?

Why have you put "which I will not name" like its something special? I … Why have you put "which I will not name" like its something special? I never name my inanimate objects either.

What remote you trying to configure?



Cyberlink - following this forum.xbmc.org/sho…d=1

I've got to

ps -ef | grep lircd

and it doesn't say anything similar to what it's supposed to, just a list of what looks like oher commands

Have you tried following ]http//fo…=45 instead?

sudo vi /etc/lirc/hardware.confShould i dosudo nano … sudo vi /etc/lirc/hardware.confShould i dosudo nano /etc/lirc/hardware.conf ?xbmc distro, think it's based on ubuntu



yeh that will work,

or if your doing alot of commands under root

sudo su

then sudo privlages will be applied to everything else so

nano /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

Vi is a very powerful editor but its not intuative atall where nano will give you a list of commands along the bottom.
