Getting MCE remote to work in Arch Linux

December 12th, 2012 Comments off

After Arch Linux upgraded to systemd, I have been fighting to get my MCE remote to work correctly.
I think the problem is that lirc is now included in the stock kernel, but they are older drivers. So in order to use lirc correctly you have to blacklist them when booting Arch.
I followed the instructions in and finally got irw to respond with nice keypresses for all buttons on my remote.
I am now happily running XBMC with my MCE remote.

Hej Birthe

Jeg har lige set samrådet (, hvor du bør forklare de forskellige ting som er sket i sagen omkring de statsløse.
Jeg er rystet over din helt klare tilsidesættelse af ganske almindelige regler. Din arrogance overgår alt hvad jeg indtil dato. Du svarer jo ikke på et eneste spørgsmål der bliver stillet. Det eneste du kan sige er at det der vil blive kigget fremad…. Hvordan kan du klandre oppositionen for at de ikke har opdaget noget, når det helt klart er DIT ansvar?????

Lev op til dit ansvar som minister !!!!!


I just watched the conciliation ( where you were supposed to explain the various things that have happened in the case of the stateless refugees.
I am appalled at your obvious disregard of ordinary rules. Your arrogance surpasses anything I have seen till date. You do not respond to a single question being asked. The only thing you are able to say that we must look forward …. How can you blame the opposition that they have not discovered anything when it clearly is YOUR responsibility ?????

Live up to your responsibility as a minister !!!!!

This is one of the reasons i am getting out of the cloud. I do not trust big corporations anymore. Having all sorts of apps in the cloud, be it Gmail, Facebook, Live etc. has a price, and that price is your personal data:

Learned today that are shutting down their services. I have used it for at least five years, and have thousands of posts.

I had a look at Sillybeans site and  decided to make a subdomain, called, and installed a new instance of WordPress here. Then I added this plugin, imported all my bookmarks and changed my theme to this so it was easier to navigate my bookmarks.

Now I have my own private bookmark manager


Rumors are that apparently is not shutting down, but merely being sold off. However that does not change my mind about moving out of the cloud.
