Ubuntu 18.04 MCE Remote not working?
Well I needed to do a install for someone on a new computer so i decided to try 18.04, it was GREAT right up until I tried to use a MCE remote with it and then everything went to bad.  I could not get anything other than the arrow keys to work in Kodi until I installed ir-keytable and then MAYBE once out of every 10 times I hit the ok button it would work, I could not ever get the back button to work at all, and most of the time it would send double button pushes on the buttons that did work.  So either I am missing something or there is a big problem with remote controls in 18.04.  If there are any guides or someone could respond to this post telling me how to make it work I would love to know, I spent two solid days trying to get it to work with no luck.

First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

 No I didn't, but thanks.  However after reading through it I see other people are having the same issues in 18.04.  So I am not sure what is broke in 18.04 but it seems extremely difficult to make a remote work correctly under 18.04.
I had the same problem, and so have a lot of other people going by the number of posts I've seen. See my thread at https://forum.kodi.tv/showthread.php?tid=333904
I am NOT a coder, in fact I am not very comfortable in Linux outside of a GUI. I am just a user of Linux and Kodi (formerly XBMC), as my user name implies.
