Continuing the discussion from Manjaro Community and Documentation can't be beat
The project, using the same IR remote to control a stereo receiver and a computer, I was and still am working on involves OSMC, LIRC, Raspberry Pi 3, and Ubuntu. I got everything “kind-of” working on both OSMC and Ubuntu. ie. the remote works, but the system sees multiple key strokes when a key is pressed once. I have perused not only the Arch Wiki, LIRC documentation (including the man pages), OSMC forums, and the internet in general to find a solution without success. The only one the seems to work is to manually
sudo systemctl stop lircd_helper@lirc0 after boot. Then the remote works great. Any ideas on what to look at and for would be great. More info can be found here.
