First, please bottom post so people can follow along easier :)
By default mythtv look for the lircrc file in a hidden directory
(.mythtv) in the mythtv users' home directory.
(/home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc) Running "ls -a /home/mythtv" from a
terminal ought to show that directory being present. You stated that you
installed with Synaptic. Are you running Fedora or Debian or something
else? What documentation are you using? Again it sounds to me like you
don't have the lircrc in the proper place.
Please post the results of "ls -a /home/mythtv" , "ls
/home/mythtv/.mythtv", your linux distribution, where you pulled your
myth packages from and what documentation you're using.
