Bug Description

Binary package hint: lirc

lirc's configuration is almost very good; it would be even better if it didn't require user intervention. gnome-lirc-properties has autodetection code which seems to work at least for me; could this be used?

Hmmm. I can't assign the bug to me. This is something that I'm working on though.

The general goal is to take the detection logic in gnome-lirc-properties and move it to a new package. Then gnome-lirc-properties and lirc can both make use of the autodetection and configuration without requiring the GUI.

My attempts to talk to the developers of gnome-lirc-properties have been unsuccessful so far. Hopefully they'll accept a patch when one is ready.
