    Intel NUC 34010WYKH CIR issue


      First off - please excuse my linux ignorance. I followed the nuci3hometheatresolution guide V2 from the Intel website to set up Linux Mint and XBMC but I messed up the lircd part by choosing "custom" as my remote type. I thought it may be as simple as removing and reinstalling lirc but I can no longer get to the lirc menu where you choose the remote type. Below is a copy of my terminal commands and results. Any help would be appreciated.

          Your problem is related to the fact that removing lirc still leaves its configuration files in place for the case you need them later. In order to remove the package completely together with the config files you need to run 'apt-get purge <packet name>'. The better alternative for you should be just re-running the package reconfiguration. So try to run 'apt-get reconfigure lirc'.


          Hope this helps.

            I have been away so haven't tried this till now. Purge solved my issue. Thankyou very much for your help.
