LIRC & irtoy: hardware does not support sending

Updating my existing IR setup - yet again (for the n-th time in 20 years...)

irToy hardware IR sender/receiver on Xubuntu 20.04.6, using lirc 0.10.1.
It works! 8) :D

Well, at first I got an error, when I tried this:

Code: Select all

$ irsend SEND_ONCE UniversumVCR power 
hardware does not support sending
Edit the following lines in /etc/lircd_options.conf:

Code: Select all

driver          = default
device          = auto
Do *not* use the irtoy driver. I think that's only for the `/dev/ttyACM0` kernels.
Restart lircd service, and irsend (and the rest) really "just works":

Code: Select all

$ sudo systemctl restart lircd
My setup:
I'm using the "new" (kernel 5.15) lirc kernel modules/drivers and the default `apt install lirc` package.
