IrDA-Utils (manage and control infrared devices)
This package contains various user space utilities which control
IrDA stack and a bunch of little programs serving as examples and
tools for IrDA applications.
If you want to enable SIR mode connections at startup, adjust the
serial port of you IrDA in /etc/rc.d/rc.irda, make it executable
with 'chmod +x rc.irda' and add the following lines to your rc.local:
if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.irda ]; then
If you are unsure which serial port to choose, 'dmesg | grep tty' may
point you to the right direction.
For detailed instructions on how to enable FIR mode, see 'man 8 irattach'
and README.irattach in the doc directory.
