Well, with a private compile of a driver that was written for LCDproc versi=
0.4.x, privately built into into version 0.5.1 of LCDproc (which is=20
superseeded by 0.5.2 btw.) the chances of supporting you are very limited.

The error message says it is a problem in the init routine of the itrans=20
driver caused by irtrans being unable to init the/a client socket.

The "Arguments" option strongly indicates the driver was written for LCDpro=
0.4.x which is unsupported for more than 4 years now.

Sorry, for not being able to help you further
