/dev/lirc0 missing

Recommended Posts



i tried to get an infrared transmitter working, but without success. 

An /dev/lircX device is never created. I'm using an NanoPi Neo and want to use lirc.

The pwm_ir_tx/gpio_ir_tx modules are loaded but i can't see a device.


Can anyone help me?


Best regards

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

When i enable CIR in armbian-config. A /dev/lirc0 is created, but ir-ctrl reports the following:
Receive features /dev/lirc0:
 - Device can receive raw IR
 - Can report decoded scancodes and protocol
 - Resolution 8 microseconds
Send features /dev/lirc0:
 - Device cannot send


Has anyone a working guide to enable transmitting IR codes via lirc on armbian ?

Do like this:    so easy! on 5.8 kernel

1:  exec: armbian-config --->system--->hardware, open irc

2: dmesg while found ir device, and build device file on /dev/lirc0

3: install lirc application

4: configure , move /etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/devinput.lircd.conf to /etc/lirc/lircd.conf.d/devinput.lircd.conf-dist

5: use irrecord to build a remote contrel coding file, and put it to dir: /etc/lir/lircd.conf.d, do: systemctl restart lircd

6: irw try to use it.(If press key no output, do step 5 agaen. may be you need "ir-keytable -p xxx" set your protocol) 

7: configure irexec , and exex it on daemon mode!  OK!   


I used lirc for "mpc command", and write a simplay script control music play!
