I tried it on F8.
I had to upgrade


before installing


I also used lirc from CVS (the newest version I could get).

When I rebooted and run /usr/bin/gnome-lirc-properties, I got:

Any clue?

The problem is that it is not able to parse my configuration file in /etc/sysconfig:

LIRCD_OPTIONS="-H dev/input --device name='bttv IR (card=70)'"

Note that this is a valid OPTION. It has been working with my remote for a long time ...

Upgrading to version 0.8.3 and using PolicyKit 0.9.2 from F10 made it work on F8.

However, it will take a long time until all remote codes out there are converted
to the standard lirc namespace, so the applications work out of the box.

Some keys do not even have a natural correspondence on my remote,
such as "snapshot", "scan", "loop", etc ... I would have to choose another name for them
from the options in the namespace.

But the idea is interesting. I like standards.
