garg_art2002, Dude, please listen to me. Don't argue, just listen.
The Fiire remote never worked completely with 0810. This is due to underlying kernel subsystem changes. Because the kernel appropriates all input devices for itself now, we can't use the HIDInterface code in Orbiter to talk to the remote, as it is. the libusb calls do not work, so:
* You can't use all the buttons
* the automatic gyro on/off control does not work
* Remote binding does not work, so no follow me.
There isn't a case of a DRIVER, because the remote was MADE for LinuxMCE. The support is built in OrbiterGL itself as part of the HIDInterface class. Go look at the code if you want to see.
IT HAS TO BE REWRITTEN USING THE KERNEL FACILITIES.
I know what has to be done, I know how much time it will take, I just need donations so i can work on it RIGHT NOW, so that I can PAY RENT next month.
The Fiire Chief gyro remote (the ugly brown thing!) worked brilliantly under 0710, however due to changes in the Linux kernel Human Interface Device subsystem in later versions, this remote no longer works properly in Kubuntu versions 0804 and later. This means the remote becomes useless for LinuxMCE 0810 and onwards.Hi Colin - My Fiire remote worked briefly (and at least partially) in 810 before it got disabled. I initially thought that this may be due to alpha nature of the LMCE810, untill I stumbled upon this note. I think the fiire remote worked with the XBMC when I tried so the drivers may be available somewhere.
It requires significant recoding to provide support for this device - and it would be good to know how many people out there have one, are using it, and want to be able to continue using it now that 0710 is no longer supported and 0810 is almost here.
Without the Fiire gyro remote the media center becomes a computer!!
