Briefly, I am struggling to get a GPS receiver working under Linux (Mint)
and Windows (7,8.1,10).
Windows 10 may be some obscure configuration issue. I soldier on.
Linux Mint I just installed gpsd and the GPS worked.
That is, until I tried to view maps in a web browser and use GPS.
At the moment it looks as though Ubuntu (and derivatives) build Firefox
and Chromium without the flag --enable-gpsd which mean that the browsers
cannot access gpsd to find a correct location.
All I can assume is that virtually nobody uses GPS devices on laptop (or
desktop) PCs anymore.
According to my reading, gpsd is fundamentally what connects the GPS
chipset under Android to all the mapping software, including the web
So why not under Linux????
Baffled at the moment.
