I have an Apple remote under Ubuntu, and have installed lirc, and all is kinda working.

irw output is like follows:

0000000087ee8104 00 PLAY Apple_A1156
0000000087ee8104 01 PLAY Apple_A1156
0000000087ee8104 02 PLAY Apple_A1156
0000000087ee810d 00 VOLDOWN Apple_A1156
0000000087ee8104 00 PLAY Apple_A1156
0000000087ee810d 00 VOLDOWN Apple_A1156
0000000087ee8104 00 PLAY Apple_A1156
0000000087ee810d 00 VOLDOWN Apple_A1156
0000000087ee8104 00 PLAY Apple_A1156
0000000087ee8104 01 PLAY Apple_A1156

As you see, there is a little counter of how many key presses of one unique key I have done. It resets if I don't press anything for a second or two, but otherwise it keeps counting, even if I don't hold the key down.

Now, the problem with this is that irexec doesn't recognize the repeats as key presses and ignores them. This means that I can only press one button once per second, which is enormously annoying.

Any ideas of how to fix this?

Check the repeat option in .lircrc as seen here

OK, that worked, but adding it once for every button!? Is there really no better way? OK, fine I only have six buttons, but still. :) –  Lennart Regebro Jul 16 '09 at 14:06
