[Pkg-lirc-maint] Bug#184245: running irexec as daemon

Hello there,

I think I know what the original submitter means. Delete the single line with vboxlirc! If you configure your /etc/lircrc to fire up a program on a keypress, irexec needs to be started with option -d.

To give an example /etc/lircrc:
        prog = irexec
        button = Play
        repeat = 0
        config = mpc toggle

If irexec isn't running, nothing happens. If irexec is running, playing music with music playing daemon is toggled on/off.

This is a interesting feature. Please add in next upload.

Kind regards,
