cyberlinkusb catches with libusb signals from a CyberLink remote control and
simulates key presses in X.
The problem is that with newer kernels (2.6.25 and above) not all buttons are
recognized anymore. I don't know which is the problem maker: the kernel driver
usbhib or the remote control.
Maybe a kernel driver would be a better solution, but I have no idea how to
write such a driver.
By default, the CyberLink IR receiver is recognized as a USB keyboard (buttons
0-9, Clear, Enter) and a USB Mouse (the rest).

If you have this kind of problems, apply the patch `Makefile-linkfix-20120412.patch` with patch < Makefile-linkfix-20120412.patch 2008-12-07 Compiling with cc didn't work on all systems. Changed compiler in Makefile to g++ Linked library libusbpp didn't exists on some systems. Changed to libusb in Makefile. 2008-09-24 libusb isn't (?) thread safe: open for every thread a new device handle 2008-09-11 First release
