Firefly Mini Remote help mapping buttons
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 15, 2008
Have issues with my Firefly Mini Remote on MythDora. The machine I am running this on is a Frontend and will not have a keyboard connected. That being said, I need some buttons working that currently are not (exit, ect...) I now find there are two options to get the "missing" keys to work; update the Kernal or setup a work-arround solution. Neither of which I can figure out HOW to do... Some help would be nice as I am at an end point!
I am sourcing this document;
I modified the .lircrc and lircd.conf files to the settings at bottom of document. Most of the buttons will work, but find the LAST, EXIT, OPTION, and MENU buttons are not functional.
Can someone walk me through this to get ALL buttons fuctional. Key Mapping instructions would be usefull (Mythdora Setup / Remote Jump Point) Also, would like the "Firefly" button to be a jump point to the main menu.
Thanks in advance!

i did some searching to see if anyone had posted this somewhere already on this forum but i didn't see anything right away.
i don't really know what to call what i am wanting to do, and the best thing i can see on the internet searches is, vpn. and i could be wrong at what i gathered vpn to mean. to me vpn sounds like just connecting to a remote desktop to control it via over the internet. please let me know if that is right or wrong.
now i will say what i want ideally to have with my network.
i have a unbuntu machine running with samba setup so that computers in my shop can access the file shares i have on there. now what i need to do now is to be able to access those shares from a completely different network/building through the internet.
and what im looking for is to log in to the existing network i have established and the solution im avoiding is to be logging in directly to the unbuntu machine since i don't want anyone mess with it. i would like to just be able to f
Windows to Linux Remote Desktop / Mapping Linux home directory as drive.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2007
Currently my workplace is using a Windows Desktop but my server is Linux Fedora. (looking to change but still a while away ...)
In the past I've just used FTP programs to upload files to my Linux server home directory... but I was wondering if there are other ways to do this.
1. is there a convenient way to bring up a remote desktop (linux fedora) from a windows xp system?
2. Failing that - is there a way to map the remote ftp/home directory as a drive that will come up under My Computer on the windows xp system?
Any pointers would be great...

Linux Mint 12: Need Help: mapping super key to MGSE bottom panel menu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 16, 2012
Linux Mint 12
Fully updated -mate
I would like to map (keybind) the windows key (super key / meta key) to the bottom panel MGSE menu. Rather than the menu you can access from the infinity icon at the top left "GNOME 3 Activities".
I have been trying vigorously on my own to figure out how to make this work. To me it seems Mint Gnome Shell Extension adds a complication to the old method.
There is no right-click on menu as in previous versions
There is no mint-menu
Even the version 11 method of altering the keyboard shortcut is no longer existant
I have installed gconf-editor, but I can not find the correct instance in the configuration editor menu tree to bind a key to
I have been milling around in the bottom panel files hoping to find something to mod.
If there is something I missed or anyone has a suggestion, post freely.
Hauppage remote configure all buttons on remote
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 10, 2007
I'm just having a little trouble getting my remote to work correctly. I am running mythbuntu 7.10 which is my second install (long story). I used mythbuntu control centre to select the remote which gets about half of the buttons to work correctly. I have a grey hauppage remote (TV Card Nova-S) and have tried a number of different things posted in other forums but everything I tried just seemed to wreck it. I guess that when I change the remote settings in the control centre that it overrides any changes I've made and the remote works again. I have tried using irw but get a connection refused error so I haven't been able to see if all the buttons are configured correctly. My ~/.mythtv/lircrc file reads:
remote = NOVA-T500
prog = mythtv
button = 7
config = 7
repeat = 0
delay = 0
remote = NOVA-T500
prog = mythtv
button = ArrowRight
config = Right
repeat = 0
delay = 0
[SOLVED] Trying to build up xubuntu from ubuntu mini, need help with indicator app
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 7, 2015
In xubuntu the indicator applet has four items it displays:
I've installed the ubuntu meta package for xfce4 and suggested packages, so from what I can see, it should be displaying the same thing but all the indicator applet is displaying right now for me is "Application Indicators" and I can't figure out any way to add the other three things. The only thing on my panel right now is my networking indicator.
So can someone help me figure out what I'm missing?
mini project, help me get started
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 11, 2009
I hope i'm typing this in the proper area, as the name states I'm an absolute noob when it comes to ubuntu, i've been reading about it over the years, tested it once a few years back but never really had to live with it.
recently my home PC gave up on me, rather 1/2 of the ram is no longer being read (which of the 2 module, i still have to figure out lol)
what i'll end up with though is an old motherboard, 512mb ram, amd 3000+(i think it's 64 bit), geforce 7600 (agp), 500watt power supply, i used to run vista if that's any help...
my question is, if i want to make a home server/sort of a NAS which version of ubuntu do i download/install?
as i do not know anything about ubuntu i felt i needed to ask first, i'm in no rush as this is a mini project of mine, over the holidays i'm targeting about 2-3 1TB drives initially, hopefully by Q2 of next year I should get that number up to about 5-7. I want to be able to run it 24/7 but not necessarily have it on the whole time. right now I al
How to setup channel ID for Snapstream Firefly RF remote R1000
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 13, 2007
I have two Snapstream Firefly RF remotes and they both accept all channel IDs. So both remotes worked on both computers. This presented a problem since the remote in the livingroom would change channels on the computer in the living room and the bedroom. I found a link that explained how to separate the remotes thus giving each their own channel ID.
I didn't exactly follow the instructions to the letter so here is what I did:
1. I added this code to my /etc/modprobe.d/aliases
alias char-major-57-* esp
alias char-major-58-* esp
alias char-major-61 lirc_atiusb
options lirc_atiusb unique=1 debug=1 mask=0x0010
alias char-major-63-* kdebug
alias char-major-67-* coda
alias char-major-75-* specialix
There are two key parameters to understand:
0=accept all channel IDs
1=accept only channel IDs set by the mask parameter
This sets your channel ID. Example: my setup uses channel ID 5 which is mask-0x0010.
Very newbie (and blonde)...be gentle Mini 9 help needed.

Hi. I am a complete nubface to linux and ubuntu. I was completely digging it...until day 2. I did upgrades and my little 4GB Mini pegged the HD out and now I have 500MB free. I did all the things I could find about dropping your cache DL files and my 4 GB system (which only registers 3.4GB per the df -Th in terminal) has sucked up so much I'm not sure what to do. So I figured, "Hey...I just got this 3 days ago...Dell.com can help." The chat service for the mini's told me that they couldn't help me and gave me a linux ubunto number that doesn't support the mini's who gave me another support number that gave the response of "reload your OS, but don't load any add-ons." And their tech supervisor told me that "if you bought it online you saw that it only had 4GB of HD and it will run" to which I told him that if I gave him a calculator with a 1 and a + and - sign, then it would run too. Just not effectively.
So I am bowing to the masters of the all knowing.
RRC126 MCE Remote Button Mapping
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 11, 2014
I found out that by default Mythbuntu recognizes my IR remote so that there is no need to install LIRC. However I would like change some of the button mappings and am not sure where to look. Namely, I would like the OK button to be recognized as the Enter button.
I tested with sudo showkey -s
and OK was not even recognized on input. I have plenty of linux experiance, just new with Mythbuntu.
