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 http://www.arch-ed.dk/systemd-lircd-mceusb-xbmc-and-arch-linux/ 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.
