Ati Remote Wonder

Postby W3stinat0r on Sun Jan 06, 2008 11:26 pm

Hello,

I've got an ATI Remote Wonder RF remote control that I use with my TV tuner. I was using Ubuntu 7.04 and upgaded to 7.10 - that's when things went downhill...

Since the remote (and a bunch of other things) broke, I figured I'd check out some other distros and came across Mint. When booting the LiveCD, the remote worked, so I thought my troubles were over... I installed Mint and now the remote doesn't work again!

I've done some research and it looks like a lot of people are having trouble with Gusty and this remote, but most of of the hits I've seen involve using LIRC. I have no reason to install LIRC if I can get the remote working the way it used to natively with the OS, so I don't want to go down that rabbit hole right now.

Anyone else having issues? Is LIRC my only option?

Thanks!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Here's a link to a guide for LIRC

Even if Daryna is not based on Gutsy most guides for Gutsy works

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
