I did not want to hijack this thread
http://www.hifi-remote.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=101638
But what Barf said about HP-TSGI-IR01
working with linux I tried and failed.I set irscrutibizer as /dev/lirc0
and get io exception error 13 permission denied I have changed permissions
and no luck. To make matters worse i also use a usb dial up modem
and if online i have a lock file set for that.
I do not want any one to waste too much time on this because i was thinking it would be easier to just buy ir widget from Tommy
But if anyone has a simple solution to try other wise i am just going to give up on the idea of using the HP-TSGI-IR01 to capture IR

This is probably a Linux issue. What Linux distribution are you using?

First, after the device is plugged in, issue

Code:

$ sudo chmod 666 /dev/lirc0

This should work, until next time to boot or replug the device. The permanent solution is then, depending on the Linux distribution, probably something like

Code:

$ sudo usermod -aG lirc

(you probably need to log out and log in for this to take effect.)

If this does not help, post the output of lsusb and the ouput of ls -l /dev/lirc0 and dmesg |tail -20 (after the device is connected).

The logs look good. Not quite identical to what I get, but that is probably OK. So I am pretty sure that it is a problem with your Linux setup.

We are not using rxtx in this use case. Still, cannot hurt.

Hmm, looks like there is a modem manager around, try to disable it. This
Code:

[ 1565.555725] ttyS0: LSR safety check engaged!

looks quite suspicious...

Another thing to try is to boot a standard Live-[CD/DVD/Stick] system and see how that behaves.

ok so tried a lot of things to no avail
I have my linux on another test computer so I removed modem manager
wvdial gnome-ppp and still lsr tty lock engaged
I am thinking something with setserial but i am not an expert at linux
I am also thinking of just using a different version of linux
I have spare hard drives for it if you can recommend a linux flavor to try
I would have to download at someone else s house that has high speed
so it might take awhile to get it
Anyway here is the log of commands running xubuntu 18.0.4
from cd notice no lock engaged also could bluetooh service lock it?
Thanks in advance

Very unlikely.

One thing you can always try is
Code:

sudo setenforce 0


Please try the following: Install lirc (probably sudo apt-get install lirc). Then connect the device and issue
Code:

mode2 --driver=default

then shoot a sensible IR signal at the device. What happens?

Lirc already installed
mode 2 command gave this

test2@test2:~$ mode2 --driver=default
mode2: could not get file information for /dev/lirc
mode2: default_init(): No such file or directory
test2@test2:~$

success it works
something I just started testing from more reading
the way I read your instructions was to set it as /dev/lirc0
but rereading things i set it as mode2 -d /dev/lirc0
and it works
thank you lessons learned read read read reread

Irscrutinizer is working
I start capturing HW
scrutinize signal tab capture shoot remote at it and it give me a readout
Sometimes it does not always start correctly and i have to close and reopen but maybe because my modem is online
I know it has interfered with RMIR in the past

So, was the magic word? Why did in not work to start with? What do we learn from this?

If you have reproducible problems I will be happy to go after them.

yes well it is working on my original linux
I am assuming i had the wrong device of /dev/lirc0
instead of mode 2 -d /dev/lirc0
But it will not work on my other computer or on xubuntu 18.0.4 as of yet
xubuntu 18 is buggy anyway so i will stick with what i have
