autostart of kremotecontrol

Mon Aug 16, 2010 10:45 am
kremotecontrol doesn't start automatically on my KDE 4.5 system.

So the big question is: why doesn't it start and what do I have to change? ;-)

did it ever automatically start?
how are you attempting to autostart it?
did you try the systemsettings -> startup and shutdown -> autostart module?

No.

I don't know. I thought it will start by its own.

No, because I don't know what to do there. There is no daemon and I don't know the name of any executable of kremotecontrol.

Till now I started it with systemsettings -> input devices -> remotes

Ok - I don't have any remotes so I'm guessing - it appears to me that you want to have the Daemon (not a program) started automatically

systemsettings -> startup and shutdown -> Service Manager -> startup services -> K remote control daemon - should be checked and then when highlighted click "start" button (on bottom) and then "save"

I think it's a kind of daemon. Like you can read on the Homepage there is an "systemtray applet named IRKick".

And sadly there is no startup service of kremotecontrol in the systemsettings.

EDIT: I found out that the systemtray applet is not called IRKick but krcdnotifieritem. So I added this app to the autostart and now it works for me.

However ... tanks for the help.

do you have the kremotecontrol package installed?

in my distro there's a lirc-kmp-desktop rpm kernel module

Mh... no I don't have this.

I'm using openSUSE 11.2 x86_64 with KDE Factory.

kremotecontrol 4.5-139.1 is installed. LIRC and its kernel modules is also installed and works fine. The only problem is that there is no startup service listed.

I'm running 4.6svn (the unstable repo), maybe that's why it shows? But it won't start for me (error= unable to start server krcd).

sorry, maybe someone else can help or you can try IRC: #kde-utils on Freenode

krcd? I have a service that makes the same error-message if I want to start it. But it was strange translated.

I'm using a german version and there it's called "Fernsteuerungsdienst für KDE" and this means something like "remote control service for kde" Because I never heard of krcd I thought it's something about VNC.

So it's seems to be a bug. It must be krcdnotifieritem not only krcd, doesn't it?

maybe it's how openSuse does it - look in yast -> system -> system services (runlevel) -> lirc -> enable -> ok
