just like any other USB device.

You must have the IR options enabled in your kernel and then I think it's just a question of using it like any other /dev haven't fired mine up in ages...

You will need the IRDA urilities package that may already be in your distro..irda.sourceforge.net

enjoy!

FAQ


Hardware related

1. Is my USB IrDA dongle supported by LIRC?

No, it's technically not possible to use USB IrDA dongles with LIRC.

Here you can see with your eyes:
