You are wrong. ;)

The path of least resistance for using remotes is to use the irxevent
application that's included with lirc.  This allows ANY application
(that accepts X events for input) to receive remote input as though it
had been entered with a keyboard. This allows for all kinds of
applications to be used without hassle.
