NAME

       LIRC mouse daemon - translates infrared signals into mouse events

SYNOPSIS

       lircmd 0.7.1pre2 [options] [config-file]

DESCRIPTION

       This  daemon  can  simulate a MouseSystems, IntelliMouse or IMPS/2 type
       mouse. It gets the received buttons from lircd  and  converts  them  to
       mouse events. To make this possible, lircmd needs a config file located
       in /etc/lircmd.conf. In this file you have to  determine  which  button
       from which remote causes a mouse move or a mouse button click.

       -n --nodaemon
              don’t fork to background

OPTIONS

       If you provide the --nodaemon option lircmd won’t fork to background.

FILES

       lircmd  will  use  syslogd to output error messages. It depends on your
       system configuration where they will show up.

DAEMONS

       lircd and lircmd are daemons. You should start them in some init script
       depending  on your system. There are some example scripts for different
       distributions in the contrib directory. lircmd has to be started  after
       lircd as it connects to the socket lircd provides.

       If  you  start  lircd or lircmd from your shell prompt you will usually
       get back immediately to the prompt. Often people think that the program
       has  died.  But  this  is  not  an error. lircd and lircmd are daemons.
       Daemons always run in background.
