This module allows you to configure your remote controls. You can assign actions that are executed on button presses. Actions can start applications, control them or execute system commands, such as powering off your computer.


To use KRemoteControl you must have set up a compatible backend for remote controls on your computer. Currently there is only a backend for LIRC available. If LIRC is properly set up, the KRemoteControl icon in the system tray will light up red . If not, it will be gray and crossed out .
