Install lirc-modules-source. During install, it should ask you what
modules you'd like to build. Select mceusb2. If you already have it
installed, you can run "dpkg-reconfigure lirc-modules-source".
After that, to build the module, run as root:
# m-a prepare
# m-a a-i lirc
This will build and install the lirc_mceusb2 kernel module. Make sure
your /etc/lirc/hardware.conf file looks something like:
#Try to load appropriate kernel modules
# Run "lircd --driver=help" for a list of supported drivers.
# If DEVICE is set to /dev/lirc and udev is in use /dev/lirc0 will be
# automatically used instead
Restart lirc (/etc/init.d/lirc restart) and it should load the module
for you, and it should now work.
