Hello, I'm trying to connect an arduino nano to a linux-computer, using an USB-connection, AGirs (on the arduino-side) and Lirc (on the linux-side). My problem is that I want to send push-button-signals to the linux-computer, beside the ir-signals. AGirs seems to focus on the ir-receiver-capabilities. Im planning to connect an ir-diode at a later time. For now, I want the push-buttons to work properly. For this I'm looking for a way to send ir-codes to the computer manually, even without an ir-diode. I have five push-buttons: left, right, up, down and select. How do I send signals (pulses) to lirc manually?
Agirs is not so well documented. I searched the whole web for documentation and tutorials, without luck. I always ended up on the same three or four websites related to the project.
