Subject: [maemo-leste] GPS fun on Droid 4 and leste

GPS on the droid 4 does not really work out of the box.

gpsd is not in default installation, maybe it should be?

What is worse, there's something broken with gpsd. Try:

/usr/sbin/gpsd -N -D 5 /dev/gnss0
gpspipe -w
# this seems to work, but do ^C and restart
gpspipe -w
...and it hangs.

xgps from gpsd-clients is broken: probably missing dependency
on gtk3 libraries.

user@devuan-droid4:/my/tui/lib$ xgps
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/xgps", line 30, in <module>
      gi.require_version('Gtk', '3.0')
 File "/usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/gi/__init__.py", line
 129, in require_version
 raise ValueError('Namespace %s not available' % namespace)
 ValueError: Namespace Gtk not available

Any ideas?
