I think that bluez-libs is a dependency

Hi, Is there anyway I can run this on an armv7 device? I tried to install this package with yaourt and just added armv7 in pkgbuild, of couse with no sucess..
Just asking, cause there is even a official package for raspberry pi armv6.
Would be really cool, since my device also has an ir receiver and i saw theres also aremote for it.

Not having much luck with this.

Tried it as a non-root user, with the service file below, and it ran, but changed to remotes were not saved. Tried copying the remote into my home directory and adding --remotes="/home/user/.urserver/remotes" and that "fixed" that problem, so it seems like a permissions problem.

I had to do "sudo modprobe uinput" to get it to do anything at all on my Android phone.

And as a non-root or root user the "Launcher" remote doesn't do anything on my Android phone. It says loading for a second, then it's blank. I tried adding a custom entry for Chrome, still blank. Looking at the lua file, it seems it is supposed to auto-add everything for you. This would be one of the most useful features, but it's not working at all.

Oh and the mouse and keyboard simulation works, except I can't see the cursor, so that's mostly useless as well.

At this point it is a good Netflix remote once I VNC in, open Chrome, load Netflix, choose my profile, and start playback.

Any one else having these problems? And I am not complaining about the package, by the way, thanks for maintaining it.

Ah, its because you use the same filename for both i686 and x86_64. Please fix.

I get this when building for i686:

==> Making package: unified-remote-server (Wed Oct 29 21:49:48 CET 2014)
==> Retrieving sources...

My urserver@.service is as below. You can start it with systemctl start urserver@user. The same configuration is starting a service as user (see for example jackd-no-dbus-git and others) but in this case it is not!

@fahq613: The trouble with that (as pointed out by others below) is that it makes the server run as root which is neither necessary nor secure..

fahq613 commented on 2014-10-13 16:48

Here is my proposed Systemd startup file so that you can enable the server to startup on boot. I've uploaded it to pastebin as well as included it in this post. It works for me so i figured id share to try and help somebody out
