Very new to this low-level driver stuff, so many places to make mistakes.
Basically I'm trying to get an IR transmitter with lirc. I have a IR led to pin 23 with a transistor, however there's nothing in
I installed lirc with
apt-get install lirc,
config.txt and changed
driver = default device = /dev/lirc0
However, there's nothing in
/dev, and if I try to send with
irsend I get
hardware does not support sending. The system status for lircd shows this error:
Error: could not get file information for /dev/lirc0
I'm using a RPi 3B running Raspbian Stretch with
Linux raspberrypi 4.19.42-v7+ #1219 firmware.
I don't know what other command dump you might need so just comment and I'll add to the question
NOTE: I was reading about
gpio-ir however that seems to be receiver only. Any link to any library with IR transmission would be appreciated too.
