Go to the KDE desktop and go into the admin web page, when you are in your admin web page go to media directors under hardware. at the bottom of the list there is a "ir remote". chose "MCE usb_2" . then do a quick reload. There is 3 different MCE drivers in the list, one of them should work for you.
I hope this helps, I dont have my system up to check. I have the same one and it worked for me.
