How to start LIRC

My remote control is a Pinnacle PCTV, which uses the driver “pinsys”.

In order to see the driver available in lircd, use the command:
# lircd –driver=?

To see what are the supported remote control and the related driver:

To start the lirc daemon with the correct driver and serial port, use the command:
# lircd –driver=pinsys –device=/dev/ttyUSB0

Then in KDE start the IRKick program.
