LIRC stands for Linux Infrared Remote Control, and it is an open source command-line software, a daemon that accepts commands for sending and receiving IR (Infrared Remote) signals to/from the hardware that supports it.

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
