 I actually just used that page last night to set up my new MCE v2 on
my bedroom PC. I have it running Kubuntu 7.10, plugged the IR module
in and it automatically saw it and loaded the proper driver. started
the LIRC daemon, copied the lircrc from the MythWiki page and
restarted mythfrontend and it worked perfectly! I need to edit some of
the mappings for my personal use (and set it so the power buttons turn
force DPMS on and off for my 21" monitor I'm using as a "tv")

Oh, and I'm running SVN, not that it should really matter in this case....
