Description Ralph Corderoy 2018-03-20 15:07:10 UTC
I found wpa_supplicant running when systemd confirms it's disabled.
This has been tracked down to `redshift -o', for a one-shot effect,
that uses geoclue2 over DBus that starts wpa_supplicant.service.
I want to stop geoclue2 thinking it can enable wifi.

Examining /etc/geoclue/geoclue.conf there are comments, but it's unclear
if all possible options are shown and commented.  [network-nmea] has an
`enable=true', but [wifi] doesn't.  Better documentation seems needed,
like a time-honoured decent man page found with `man -k geoclue',
or at least a statement at the start of the file stating its completeness.

load_wifi_config() at https://cgit.freedesktop.org/geoclue/tree/src/gclue-config.c?id=91bf1790b7220c7ecc96cddc284690a924cd9449#n184
suggests there is no `enable' switch to turn wifi off.
I'll open a separate bug for that.
