Everything started in Set. 1999, when I bought Evation's IRMAN, and found that support on linux was based either on direct support (xmms) or through lircd (xawtv) wich locked out xmms. Maybe there was a way to go around this using lircd, but I thought .oO( Hey, am I not a programmer? ) so I decided to do one which would suit me as needed.
Here it is... at the touch of a switch and a button, your remote will handle xmms. Or xawtv, or whatever you specify in a configuration file (I recommend that /etc/irmctl.conf be created by someone who knows what root compromise means, but copying the default should be fine for most users).
You can find more info at irmctl.netpedia.net, as well as on-line documentation.
I don't expect it to be portable, but since this is released under GPL 2.0, feel free to give me a help, but I note that it *is not* a priority. Maybe for version 2.0.0.
