NAME
       lircmd  -  LIRC	mouse  daemon  translates  infrared signals into mouse
       events

SYNOPSIS
       lircmd [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.  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

OPTIONS
       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.

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. Dae-
       mons always run in background.

SEE ALSO
       The documentation for lirc is maintained	as html	pages.	They  are  lo-
       cated under html/ in the	documentation directory.
