The receiver can be trained to create keyboard events (i.e. simulate the pressing of keys or combination of keys like Shift, Ctrl, Alt) for infrared signals it receives from a infrared remote. A configuration software for the device is provided by the supplier and can be downloaded from (.deb files and .rpm files available for differen Linux distributions).
