[LINUX] HOW-TO configure Soundgraph iMON VFD/IR Receiver (used by many HTPC chassis)
#86
droopy4u Wrote:I'm trying to get my remote and vfd working on my Silverstone LC-20M working (vendor 15c2 prodid 0036) in combination with XBMC Live.

I see in the forums, that this how-to should help me do it, but I get stuck real quick.

Code:
(T: XBMCLiveCD)[email protected]:$ sudo apt-get build-dep lirc lcdproc
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
[b]E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list[/b]

I guess this is where it all starts, I don't have anything in sources.list it's an empty file
Can anyone provide me with the proper steps? Also I tried to unload the usbhid (using my own prodid 0036 instead of 0038 from the startpost) but this still loads after a reboot.

Thanks!

I also got the ID 15c2:0036 device and am trying to make things run on XBMC live. It came with my Chieftec HM-03B HTPC case. Ran into the same problem, but I thought it was a warning and not an error so I continued. Maybe this is the cause of my problems as well.

This is what I did to stop the usbhid from loading for this device.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lirc-modules-source cvs build-essential dialog libtool automake1.9 autoconf
sudo apt-get build-dep lirc lcdproc
(warning/error like: E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list)
sudo apt-get remove lirc lcdproc
(lirc failed to stop, but seems to be removed)
vendor/device search: lsusb
(result: Bus 003 Device 002: ID 15c2:0036 SoundGraph Inc.)
sudo mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb
sudo cat /proc/bus/usb/devices
(this devices Driver=usbhid)
create: sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid
add line: #Soundgraph USB IR/VFD usbhid quirk
add line: options usbhid quirks=0x15c2:0x0036:0x0004
save and exit

>>>

I was unable to stop the usbhid with the lines after this

sudo depmod -ae
sudo update-initramfs -u

So I created an rc.local using (suggested in this thread):

sudo nano /etc/rc.local
add line: #!/bin/sh
add line: /sbin/rmmod usbhid && /sbin/modprobe usbhid
save and exit
sudo chmod +x /etc/rc.local

This file needed a couple more lines. But those were for starting the device. Since mine didn't even load it's driver yet I skipped those for the moment.

After reboot and the commands:
sudo mount -t usbfs none /proc/bus/usb
sudo cat /proc/bus/usb/devices

I got: Driver=none

Can you confirm if the above worked for you to, Droopy4u?


I didn't get past the next part yet, which is installing the correct driver. I am not sure if we need to install a newer version, but this thread does seem to suggest it. Doing so got me stuck every time, however.
First I tried downloading the official package and patching it using the pad2keys patch:

sudo tar xvjf lirc-0.8.4a.tar.bz2
cd lirc-0.8.4a
patch -p1 < ../lirc-0.8.4a-imon-pad2keys.patch
./setup.sh

select: Soundgraph iMON PAD IR/VFD

sudo make
sudo make install

then:

sudo cp /mnt/install/lirc-0.8.4a/drivers/lirc_imon/lirc_imon.c /usr/src/lirc-0.8.3~pre1/drivers/lirc_imon
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source

This last line gave some errors and after a reboot there was still no driver loaded for my device.

After that I used the CVS approach like the topic starter (don't do this from a mount path, but from a dir in your home (~), the login will fail otherwise):

Code:
cvs -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/lirc login
cvs -z8 -d:pserver:[email protected]:/cvsroot/lirc co lirc
cd lirc
./autogen.sh
./setup.sh
sudo make
sudo make install
sudo cp ~/lirc/drivers/lirc_imon/lirc_imon.c /usr/src/lirc-0.8.3~pre1/drivers/lirc_imon
sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source

and i tried:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc

Don't know in which order, but both gave errors. Somebody on another forum used it like that.

It still doesn't work.

Do you Droopy4u or anybody else have an idea why this is failing on XBMC live?
Is there anybody that got it to work on Live? And how did you do that?
Is it possible to apply the pad2keys patch to the preinstalled 0.8.3pre version of lirc and make that work? I will try this next.

Maybe you've noticed, but I Linux is a bit new to me.

Any help is appreciated.
