I don't use either of the distros you mention, but the USB-UIRT2 has
been working with LIRC for several years now, and I use it regularly.
The command I'm using with LIRC 0.8.3 is:
lircd -H usb_uirt_raw --device=/dev/ttyUSB0 --output=/dev/lircd
Aside from that, you should try irrecord. If your lircd.conf doesn't
match the remote you're testing with, irw won't report anything back.
You should also check your syslog for any errors.
