lirc 0.10.1 Linux Infrared Remote Control

LIRC allows computers to send and receive IR signals of many commonly used remote controls. The most important part of LIRC is the lircd daemon that decodes IR signals received by the device drivers. The second daemon program lircmd translates IR signals to mouse movements. The user space applications allow you to control your computer with a remote control: you can send X events to applications, start programs and much more on just one button press.
