Error compiling for board Mega 2560 (multiple defenition of __vector_13')

I have made a (single-room) home automation system with a mega 2560. Recently I tried to add a buzzer to the system but I kept getting this error message:

Tone.cpp.o (symbol from plugin): In function timer0_pin_port': (.text+0x0): multiple definition of __vector_13'
libraries/IRremote/IRremote.cpp.o (symbol from plugin):(.text+0x0): first defined here
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
exit status 1
Error compiling for board Arduino Mega or Mega 2560.

The problem only occurs when i use the IRremote library in combination with this line of code: " tone(buzzer, 250); "
Instead of uploading my hole code I have written this small file where the same problem occurs.
Here is the library: (33.8 KB)

(my OS is linux if that matters.)

const int buzzer = 3;
#include <IRremote.h>

void setup(){
  pinMode(buzzer, OUTPUT);

void loop(){
  tone(buzzer, 250);

I am kind of a hobby programmer so I know the basics of coding (in c++) but this is the first error where I am really stuck so if you know the solution I would be very grateful to hear it!

The tone function uses the same hardware timer as the IRremote library. You'll have to move one of those to a different timer.

It solved the problem, thanks for your help!!!
