An Open Source package that allows you to decode and send infrared signals on Linux
LIRC is comprised of a daemon that will run in the background and automatically decode and send infrared (IR) remote signals, a few user programs, as well as a mouse daemon, which is used to automatically translate IR signals to mouse movements.
The LIRC project supports numerous remote controls. To see if yours is supported, please take a look at the following web page http://lirc.sourceforge.net/remotes/
