Hi Gary,

Yo Ken!

Seems like our private messages crossed before the list serve send
your list messages.  We already determined the problem solved, but
I'll mention a few things.

That is the environment from where ubxtool was run on my desktop and I was not root at that time.

Careful!  Sometimes gpsd needs root.
And on the OPi0 system, gpsd is run as root.

The easy way:

$ echo $UBXOPTS

^^^^^ empty...

ubxtool on the desktop of course needs python, on the OPi0, gpsd does not need python, but ubxtool and some of the other .py examples do.

But the issue here is ubxtool.  ubxtool is 100% Python.

Since it now works for, this is just forensics now.

Yep, glad the issue is resolved, and that 3.19 is released.

I can now "install" gpsd and continue development of my system
