Kodi & Lirc

I’ve purchased a LIRC remote controller, hoping to connect to KODI
IS it supported by DietPI? is there any updated tutorial to work with it?
I’m also asking info to my vendor because the tutorial explained on OSMC version https://nanomesher.com/pi-switch-cap-prodboard-support-for-kodi/
On OSMC it works, but on Kodi I cannot activate the lirc gpio function as explained on tutorial
very appreciated the community support
