LIRC with USB remote control: how?


I'm trying to configure my USB remote control, delivered together with my PC (HP Pavilion, to use it inside MythTV. To do it, the remote control has to be accessible through LIRC, that seems to require a serial device instead of a USB one.

When I connect to the PC the USB receiver of my remote control, I can see with "dmesg" following generated lines:

usb 2-1: new low speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 4
input: USB HID v1.10 Keyboard [3353:3713] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1
input: USB HID v1.10 Device [3353:3713] on usb-0000:00:1d.0-1

With a terminal window open, when I press the buttons of the remote control, characters are displayed on the terminal window e.g. 1 till 9 if I press the numerical buttons or a few character sequences for other buttons.

I'm using my HP Pavilion running SuSE 9.3.

How can I configure my remote control device to work with LIRC?

Thanks a lot in advance!
