LIRC is the Linux Infrared Remote Control framework: it’s widely used to control the computer with an IR remote (connected either to a USB or a Serial Port) and to send IR commands, if the hardware supports this feature – unfortunately mine don’t 😦

In this post I’ll show how to configure the iMac Apple Remote to work in Linux: this will let us control our favorite media player (Totem, Xine, MPlayer, Rhythmbox) comfortably sitting on our sofà 😉
