I am not sure why it is not working, I cant find anything wrong in the logs.
A bit annoying really that I have so my problems with this remote, as it is a great media remote.
I have been switching Kodi versions quiet a lot recently, it must of been plain Kodi I was using when I got my remote working as it was installed on top of Ubuntu and I manually installed lirc, that would make sense, if what you are saying is true.
You can probably just use the supplied lircd.conf and put it as /storage/.config/lircd.conf
However, I'd be surprised if your device doesn't "just work" without lirc.
can you get the following logs for me?
Thanks for replying to my post, yes my remote does work without lirc, but many of the buttons dont work, even in windows. (Apparently it is the HID buttons that need mapping, Kodi doesnt deal with them very well, even KeyMap Editor does not detect them).
In windows Kodi I needed to use eventghost to map the missing buttons, in OpenELec I used Lirc successfully using the wiki above.
I am now hoping to use LibreElec.
Here are the logs:
I am trying to configure my gyration remote with Lirc using this guide
The problem I am having is there is no etc/rc.local file so instead I have used /storage/.config/autostart.sh file which is fine
Instead of ~usernamerunningxbmc/.xbmc/userdata/Keymap.xml I am using /storage/.kodi/userdate/keymaps/gem.xml (this was generate by the keymap, so I thought it best to use this file.
In the wiki it says this file needs to be used ~usernamerunningxbmc/.xbmc/userdata/Lircmap.xml, I create /storage/.kodi/userdate/keymaps/Lircmap.xml,but according to my kodi.log this is not correct.

13:41:27 7.983884 T:140395404531840 ERROR: special://profile/keymaps/lircmap.xml Doesn't contain <keymap>
Does anybody have any ideas how I can resolve this?
The top of the log states NOTICE: special://masterprofile/ is mapped to: /storage/.kodi/userdata
I have tried putting a copy of lircmap.xml in /storage/.kodi/userdata & /storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps
I have now put a copy of lircmap.xml in /storage/.kodi/userdata deleted the copy of lircmap.xml from /storage/.kodi/userdata/keymaps the error goes but the remote still does not work.
Does anyone know were the lirc.log is stored?
I am currently using a Dell Premium M2010 remote but many of the buttons arent working including the pause, record, info etc, the gyration mouse works fine, the mouse was the main reason for me buying this remote.
When I used it on Kodi/Windows I needed to use Eventghost in order to get it to work.
I have seen a few old lirc solutions for kodi/linux but does anybody know of a solution for LibreElec?
Here is a link to the remote

In my opinion I built a RPi3 Kodi system for my daughter and connected it to my tvheadend server and it has not been stable at all.
If you do go down the Rpi3 route though do make sure you get a decent psu or the system will be very unstable.
An Nvidia Shield is another decent option
