Know of a command executing program for LIRC?
Let me explain...
Based on what I can figure out, LIRC takes in signals from an IR receiver and then broadcasts the resulting button association over a specific port. It doesn't actually execute any programs or anything.
What I'm looking for is a program/scripting language that listens in on that port. I want to be able to specify an action for a given button or series of buttons. Let's say I just booted my computer and have no programs running. Now I want to play some music in Amarok. If I were to put play on my remote control I want the program I'm looking for to check to see if Amarok is on, if it isn't on turn it on, and then press play. There is a program for Windows on Sourceforge that can do this but I cannot find it on a quick search.
What program/scripting language would you recommend?
