I'm developing an application that reads GPS data from gpsd servers. My development machine has no GPS, so I want to use gpsfake for testing. I thought it was supposed to work out of the box, but I
just can't get it to work. I also can't find any similar issue in the FAQ, the troubleshooting section, or with google/duckduckgo - nothing I've found has been helpful.
The versions of gpsd, gpsfake and gpslib are 3.20, as it comes standard with the ubuntu 20.04 repos, but I would have thought that should still all work together.
An example command line with resulting output is:
$ gpsfake -v -l -P 2948 -c 1 output.nmea
gpsd:ERROR: can't bind to local socket /tmp/gpsfake-3691836.sock
gpsd:ERROR: control socket create failed, netlib error -1
