Binary package “inputlirc” in ubuntu xenial

Zeroconf LIRC daemon using input event devices

 This is a small LIRC-compatible daemon that reads from /dev/input/eventX
 devices and sends the received keycodes to connecting LIRC clients. Inputlircd
 needs no configuration, it uses the standardised names for the keycodes as
 used by the kernel. Many USB remote controls that present HID devices, as well
 as multimedia keyboards should work out of the box.
