I'm trying to make a button execute a command using irexec, but it's not working. How do I reload the lircrc file without restarting the pc or logging in/out?

You could run source lircrc and it will reload any environment settings in the file.

I dont know what source is about above, but I use the following run a Terminal from within your X Session ps -ef | grep irexec kill the irexec process id type irexec and press enter Note this runs the process NOT in the background, thus you can easily Ctrl C to stop it, modify your .lircrc and then repeat run irexec again at the prompt
