Mythbuntu: Antec Fusion v1 VFD & MCE Remote (Updated for 10.10)

This is an updated how-to of my notes from an earlier post. Things have changed since Ubuntu 9.04, I am now on 10.10 due to the inclusion of Trim support. The mceusb remote should just work out of the box. Here are some notes on it. So basically this is to get your Antec Fusion v1 VFD working.

My install notes:

Install lcdproc and lirc (lirc should already be installed, but just incase)
sudo apt-get install lcdproc lirc

Create a file /etc/modprobe.d/imon-vfd.conf; add the following line.
(This is to pass kernel options at bootup. This is for my VFD, the later version VFD's are diferent. References at end of article)
options lirc_imon display_type=1

Edit /etc/LCDd.conf
Driver=imon
Goodbye=""
ServerScreen=blank

Edit /etc/lirc/lircd.conf add line at end
include "/usr/share/lirc/remotes/imon/lircd.conf.imon-knob"

Restart lirc
sudo service lirc restart


NOTE: If you are using XBMC, edit your ~/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml so that < haslcd> is set to true
nano +1892 ~/.xbmc/userdata/guisettings.xml
