Hello!

I just wanted to share my setup of Logitech Harmony One remote setup on Ubuntu 17.04 since it took me some time to figure out how it is done with ir-keytable. Had to do this since Ubuntu 17.04 doesn't support LIRC any more.
Receiver is some Phillips compatible from eBay: OVU412000/00.

Harmony One setup:

First add new device Windows Media Center SE. To do this select Add device in Logitech Harmony Remote software and then Computer -> Media Center PC -> Microsoft -> Media Center SE

Then customize buttons for your Activity, for each select added device however you named it e.g. mine is called WMC SE:
Menu -> Media
Exit -> Green
Up Arrow -> ChannelUp
Down Arrow -> ChannelDown
Info -> Info
Guide -> Guide
Up -> DirectionUp
Down -> DirectionDown
Left -> DirectionLeft
Right -> DirectionRight
OK -> OK
Channel Up -> ChannelUp
Channel Down -> ChannelDown
Prev -> Back
Rewind -> Rewind
Skip Back -> Replay
Play -> Play
Pause -> Pause
Fast Forward -> FastForward
Skip Forward -> Skip
Stop -> Stop
1 -> 1 etc for rest of the numbers
Plus -> #
E -> *
Also added additional buttons:
Subtitle -> Subtitle
Codec Info -> Red

Ir-keytable setup:

Install ir-keytable
Code:
sudo apt-get install ir-keytable

Copy remote keymaps file:
Code:
sudo cp /lib/udev/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce /etc/rc_keymaps/

Edit new file:
Code:
sudo nano /etc/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce

Change the following key entries:
KEY_NUMERIC_0 -> KEY_0 etc. for rest of the numbers
KEY_MEDIA -> KEY_M
KEY_INFO -> KEY_I
KEY_CHANNELUP -> KEY_PAGEUP
KEY_CHANNELDOWN -> KEY_PAGEDOWN
KEY_FASTFORWARD -> KEY_F
KEY_REWIND -> KEY_R
KEY_PLAY -> KEY_P
KEY_PAUSE -> KEY_SPACE
KEY_STOP -> KEY_X
KEY_NEXT -> KEY_DOT
KEY_PREVIOUS -> KEY_COMMA
KEY_NUMERIC_POUND -> KEY_Q
KEY_NUMERIC_STAR -> KEY_TAB
KEY_OK -> KEY_ENTER
KEY_EXIT -> KEY_BACKSPACE
KEY_EPG -> KEY_C
KEY_TITLE -> KEY_L
KEY_RED -> KEY_O
KEY_GREEN -> KEY_ESC
KEY_PLAYPAUSE -> KEY_SPACE

Load keycodes:
Code:
sudo ir-keytable -c -w /etc/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce

Test keycodes:
Code:
sudo ir-keytable -t

Finally I had to reboot for all changes to apply.
