Description Ross Burton 2010-06-21 04:15:21 UTC
Created attachment 36399 [details]

(Jussi Kukkonen)

attached patch adds automatic bluetooth GPS device discovery:

clients call gypsy_control_create_async () instead of gypsy_control_create ().
The signal "control_created" will be fired once a device has been discovered
(or no suitable devices were found).

There are some problems with the patch still, see FIXMEs in code


(Bastien Nocera)

Why would you want to do that?

2 things:
- BLUEZ_SERVICE_CLASS_POSITIONING isn't actually used by anything useful
- The code uses the BlueZ 3.x APIs, which nothing ships anymore.

I added a plugin to gnome-bluetooth to allow setting the GPS device to use.
