Karmic Antec Fusion VFD

Submitted by rhpot1991 on Thu, 11/12/2009 - 22:52

In past revisions of Ubuntu the Antec Fusion's iMon Pad VFD was very easy to configure. In Karmic there is a little bit of an issue where the lirc_imon module does not detect the VFD correctly. The following directions should get you up and running:

  • Install lcdproc
  • Edit /etc/LCDd.conf
    • Change 'Driver=curses' to 'Driver=imon'
    • Make sure you change the one that is not commented out, there will be 2 occurances of 'Device=curses' in the config
  • Fix the Module's VFD detection
    • Create /etc/modprobe.d/lirc-imon.conf
    • Add 'options lirc_imon display_type=1' to the above file
  • You can now either restart your computer, or run the following
    • sudo /etc/init.d/lirc stop && sudo /etc/init.d/LCDd stop && sudo modprobe -r lirc_imon && sudo modprobe lirc_imon && sudo /etc/init.d/lirc start && sudo /etc/init.d/LCDd start
  • Now your VFD should be working again.

If your device id is 15c2:0038 you need to set the driver=imonlcd and set the protocol=1 in LCDproc.conf
