Well according to the web site, support is included in LIRC from 0.7.1. 
  I just installed Lirc and it's installed 0.8.2.

To install Lirc I used the following command from a terminal window:

sudo apt-get install lirc

You then have to choose the remote type, there are about 5 different 
SoundMon devices on there.  Not sure which one is the right one.  If you 
don't get the right one try the following command to choose another one...

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc

Hope this gives you a bit more to go on.
