       lircmd - LIRC mouse daemon translates infrared signals into mouse events


       lircmd [options] [config-file]


       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.  You can  also
       specify a special button which activates or deactivates the mouse mode.

       -h --help
              display this message

       -v --version
              display version

       -n --nodaemon
              don't fork to background

       -u --uinput
              generate Linux input events


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

       On  Linux  systems  the  --uinput  option  will enable automatic generation of Linux input
       events. lircmd will open /dev/input/uinput and inject the simulated mouse events into  the
       Linux kernel rather than creating the /dev/lircm device.


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


       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

       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.

       the documentation directory.
