    Workaround For lcdproc Issue
    Submitted By: admin Date: July 13, 2014, 10:35:09 PM Views: 1119

    There is an issue with lcdproc where the kernel identifies the same device with a different device number each time you reboot. This makes working with lirc (IR) very frustrating, since users must set the device parameter of the LCDd.conf file, and the device keeps changing.

    The workaround is to create a new udev rule named /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/79-imon-lcd.rules. The file should contain the following:

    Code: [Select]
    KERNEL=="lcd[0-9]*" , ATTRS{idVendor}=="15c2" , SYMLINK+="lcd-imon"
    After saving the file, run the following:

    Code: [Select]
    udevadm trigger --action=change
    Then edit your /etc/LCDd.conf file, setting the Device parameter to /dev/lcd-imon. It should read:

    Code: [Select]
    The udev rule will create a symbolic link called /dev/lcd-imon and point it at any lcdX device identified by the kernel.

    If you'd rather use the simpler /dev/lcd as the lirc device, make the corresponding changes to 79-imon-lcd.rules and /etc/LCDd.conf (change the SYMLINK assignment to "lcd" and the Device parameter to /dev/lcd - you can, in fact, call it whatever you want as long as the two entries match up).

    This is a known bug in lcdproc. Apparently this same fix will become available in version 0.5.7-2 according to the bug report. The current version is 0.5.7-1 and has been for a while.
