What version of gpsd?

xgps should run without arguments.

Check to be sure gpsd is running. E.g.:

address@hidden:~$ ps aux | grep gpsd
nobody    8573  0.5  0.0  21888  1336 ?        S<s  07:39   1:45 gpsd -G -F 
charles  12328  0.0  0.0   9144  1036 pts/4    S+   13:19   0:00 grep 
--color=auto gpsd

If it is running, try "telnet localhost 2947".
