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)
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.
