lcdproc 0.5.3 released and ubuntu package for picoLCD


A new version(0.5.3) of lcdproc has been released. This release has a lot of improvements for picoLCD and other drivers.
I made a quick ubuntu package for picoLCD (models 20x2 and 20x4) which can be downloaded from the link below. This package has only the picoLCD driver and the configuration is made for picoLCD (note that ServerScreen is set to off to fix some problems with mythtv).
To start lcdproc execute /etc/init.d/LCDd start and start any client you want (lcdproc, lcdvc etc).

If you intend to use the IR functionality don't forget to add :

REMOTE="Network (UDP)"
REMOTE_MODULES=""
REMOTE_DRIVER="udp"

REMOTE_LIRCD_ARGS="--listen=8765"

to /etc/lirc/hardware.conf

To start lirc manually you can use: lircd --driver=udp --listen=8765

Does this lcdproc 0.5.3 release also work for the picoLCD 256x64 - graphic display?

No, there is no support for the graphical (256x64) lcd in lcdproc. Only the lcd4linux package is available.
