Ubuntu repo for VDR 1.7.X


Good news for all how already use unstable version of VDR 1.7.X or just are going to install it and don’t want to compile it from the sources. Gerald Dachs started the Ubuntu Jaunty/Karmic repository contained packages from VDR 1.7.X and its plugins. Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty users should just add following lines to their /etc/apt/sources.list:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gda-dachsweb/vdr/ubuntu jaunty main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gda-dachsweb/vdr/ubuntu jaunty main

and upcoming 9.10 Karmic:
deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gda-dachsweb/vdr/ubuntu karmic main
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gda-dachsweb/vdr/ubuntu karmic main

After that VDR and its headers and plugins can be easily installed using apt-get.

      thats nice but what about lirc support? i tryed to install it from the repository and it works fine just no remote controle support.

      it would be nice to see a guide how to set up a remote.
      i own iMOn and MCE remotes.

    When you install LIRC it should ask you about your remote control. MCE and iMON are supported very well as I know. After that you may use some ready-made remote.conf (it links LIRC and VDR) or you should learn your remote using VDR learn mode. Just remote file /etc/vdr/remote.conf and start VDR. It should ask you press one by one buttons on your remote. So just follow by OSD messages. As result you should have working remote.conf file.
