I suppose you just installed the userspace programs and are missing the 
kernel modules.
I don't know the proper way to get/install lirc kernel modules under 
debian/ubuntu, under mandriva it works out of the box.

as I said before, try to load the dvb-usb-af9005-remote module with 
debug=1 (hint, if modprobe ignores the parameter, you can "echo 1 > 
/sys/module/dvb_usb_af9005_remote/parameters/debug") and try to see 
where your syslogd is sending kernel messages (check /etc/syslog.conf).
