Comment(by vodicka.petr@…):

 Thank you for your response.

 So if somebody is facing this issue too, this is how to make this work:

 1) Find which /dev/input/eventX belongs to your remote (or keyboard if you
 want to remap that) with cat /proc/bus/input/devices (it's
 /dev/input/event8 in my case).

 2) Use default keymap for keyboards from lirc package. It's
 /usr/share/lirc/remotes/devinput/lircd.conf.devinput on OpenSUSE if you
 have Lirc package installed. Copy to /etc/lircd.conf (or
 /etc/lirc.d/lircd.conf or something like that - it depends on your
 distribution). Or you can create your own lircd.conf with "irrecord
 --driver=devinput --device=/dev/input/event8 /etc/lircd.conf".

 3) Setup lircd to use devinput driver and proper device. It's in
 /etc/sysconfig/lirc on OpenSUSE. Set LIRCD_DRIVER="devinput" and

 4) Create key mappings with .lircrc. Example:

   prog = irxevent
   button = KEY_UP
   config = Key Down CurrentWindow

   prog = irxevent
   button = KEY_LEFTCTRL
   button = KEY_LEFTSHIFT
   button = KEY_P
   config = Key ctrl-P CurrentWindow

 5) Make sure, that lircd and irxevent is started after system start.
