[LINUX] HOW-TO configure Soundgraph iMON PAD/VFD for Linux and XBMC
#1
Thumbs Up 
Hi All,

I've been battling my Imon PAD/VFD for the last few days, so here's a quick HOWTO on how to make it all work...

(It's all done on hardy...)

1. Download the pre-complied kernel module lirc_imon.ko that i've compiled with Pad2Keys enabled.

2. Replace the new lirc_imon.ko module with the old one.
Code:
sudo mv ./lirc_imon.ko /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/ubuntu/media/lirc/lirc_imon/

3. Reconfigure LIRC to use Imon PAD/VFD by running:
Code:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc

4. Copy the new lircd.conf to /usr/share/lirc/remotes/imon/
and name it lircd.conf.imon-pad2keys:
Code:
sudo cp ./lircd.conf /usr/share/lirc/remotes/imon/lircd.conf.imon-pad2keys

5. Edit /etc/lircd.conf and replace usr/share/lirc/remotes/imon/lircd.conf.imon-pad with usr/share/lirc/remotes/imon/lircd.conf.imon-pad2keys

6. Edit /etc/modprobe.d/options and add the following lines:
Code:
options lirc_imon islcd=0 pad2keys_active=1
This will translate the special directional keys on the remote to act as key presses instead of mouse movement, it will also force the lirc_imon module to output to VFD instead of the LCD (islcd=0).

7. Copy Lircmap.xml to the .xbmc/userdata folder.
ex:
Code:
cp ./Lircmap.xml /home/xbmc/.xbmc/userdata/

8. Enable the XBMC to use the iMon VFD:
Code:
cp /usr/share/xbmc/userdata/LCD.xml /home/xbmc/.xbmc/userdata/
