Interesting.
I have had the same issue.
I had not bothered looking into it too far as having a couple of other issues that are more important at moment!

I'll have to check when I get home. I am assuming this will be in the DCERouter log?

is it installed?

If not, the pluto-lirc-wrapper package needs to be installed.

Ok

Just tried apt-get install pluto-lirc-wrapper and got the following error


Failed to fetch http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/lirc_0.8.6-0ubuntu4.2+lmce1_i386.deb  Size mismatch
Failed to fetch http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/lirc-modules-source_0.8.6-0ubuntu4.2+lmce1_all.deb  Size mismatch
Failed to fetch http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/dists/lucid/beta2/binary-i386/lirc-pluto_0.1.1_all.deb  Size mismatch
E: Unable to fetch some archives, maybe run apt-get update or try with --fix-missing?

Did apt-get update and then run apt-get install pluto-lirc-wrapper and seems to be installing now!


I now have the following output

joe@dcerouter:~$ ps ax | grep LIRC
 7147 ?        Ss     0:00 /usr/bin/SCREEN -d -m -S mce_usb257 /usr/pluto/bin/Spawn_Device.sh 57 localhost LIRC_DCE

31283 pts/24   S+     0:00 grep --color=auto LIRC


However the remote does not work. I have not tried rebooting the machine yet as it is connected to the core and I am in middle of installing an MD.

Very odd, I'm still working to get my MDs online, but this is output from my core (no apparant issues)

Hey Thom,

What version of the LIRC package should be loaded? It doesn't look like any of my remotes are working in 10.04, including my core. I have been able to get pretty much everything elde working.

Thanks,
Kevin

I had uploaded a version of 0.8.7 (which is present in lucid) to our ubuntu/ tree as a replacement deb, which has the required pronto patches.
