Re: GPSD 3.23~rc1 connection to GPS

Hello and good morning!

Thank you for informing me of these methods!

For the git repo of etc/default/gpsd I would have to create a file for gpsd for my Raspberry correct? Because currently I have the directory /etc/default but no gpsd file to open and edit. 

Should I be copying and pasting this:
# Default settings for gpsd.
# Please do not edit this file directly - use `dpkg-reconfigure gpsd' to
# change the options.

For the run directory, how would find this for a Raspberry Pi? And do I also have to set the permissions to -rw-r--r-- 1 root root ?

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Ah. I went back to your first email. You installed with

One thing that that installation does not do is
install /etc/default/gpsd. So you get to do it manually. I just went
through this myself....

* Copy from the git repo gpsd/packaging/deb/
  to /etc/default/gpsd.

* Edit /etc/default/gpsd. Replace @RUNDIR@ with your run directory. On
  my Debian box, that's /run. Check to be sure that's correct for your

* Permissions should be:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root

Does anybody read signatures any more?
