Title: lirc with ir toy not working!!
Post by: jacksonmonroe on August 01, 2019, 07:11:14 pm
Hi,

i tried to install an updted lirc via the tutorial at https://gist.github.com/bullshit/918d74db9473355d7181 (https://gist.github.com/bullshit/918d74db9473355d7181)

i could create the package and install it. unfortunately, it wont work after rebooting the computer.

whenever i try to send something via irsend (commands which worked fine before) the following error occurs:

CODE: SELECT ALL
irsend: could not connect to socket
irsend: Connection refused


when I turn on the computer, the yellow led of the ir toy is on. it turns off whenever I try to send an ir command.

did I miss some kind of delay or anything else? im quite frustrated because after 2 whole days of trial&error i finally got it to work - but only until the next reboot of the computer :(


OS: kodibuntu x86

Sigh... As I wrote (http://https://gist.github.com/bullshit/918d74db9473355d7181#gistcomment-1666205) three and a half years ago, that guide was obsolete already then.

Please install the current Lirc 0.10.1 (http://https://sourceforge.net/projects/lirc) (which supports IrToy natively), then we go from there.
