ubuntu 11.04 - lirc init script sets invalid ir protocol for imon driver (imon Looks like you're trying to use an IR protocol this device does not support)
This bug report will be marked for expiration in 23 days if no further activity occurs. (find out why)
I have the following VFD + IR device...
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 15c2:ffdc SoundGraph Inc. iMON PAD Remote Controller
With the following installed versions...
...and configured using the devinput driver (config generated via "dpkg-reconfigure lirc") I get this error in syslog and lirc fails to work:
kernel: [ 20.254591] imon 2-7:1.0: Looks like you're trying to use an IR protocol this device does not support
kernel: [ 20.254597] imon 2-7:1.0: Unsupported IR protocol specified, overriding to iMON IR protocol
Running lircd manually works...
sudo /usr/sbin/lircd -n --output=
So to get lirc working when launched via the init script I have to comment out the in_kernel_support() function so that it doesn't try setting the incorrect protocol.
