A potential new Puppy user asked if there were any GPS apps under Linux.

I tried a Forum search on "gps" and it came up blank.

Doesn't Google Earth require an Internet connection?

The primary uses of GPS are in mobil e and portable contexts.

The guy who spoke to me wants something that supports common GPS apps -
road maps & directions while traveling, etc.

WDYT?

Seems like a wonderful app, though hardly anyone seems know that it exists.

Have you communicated with the author?

Looks as thought it was abandoned in 2004. If it works for me I'd like to send a little
something to the author, or perhaps to you if you are moving it over to Puppy and plan
to continue development and support.

One of my apps would be for disaster response via Amateur Radio and given that it
works on PDA's and laptops I am certain that a Puppy version would be very popular
among Ham disaster response folks.

Thank you for sending the dotpup!

Finally got a moment to load and run it.

Loaded without errors and I see it pop up but it then disappears.

I do not have a GPS device connected, could that be the problem, or do I need to
tweak a setting or load some other dependency?

OK, well I booted a live CD in ram and I got the same problem. It does the same thing. On my hardrive install it works without a problem? Perhaps you have to have a hard drive install? How is your system configured?

I have a "frugal" install on my laptop.

I can try a full install on a desktop.

Someone on the Forum likely knows what would cause the different response between
the Live CD and Frugal HDD Installs vs a Full HDD Install.

It was compiled with a different version of gdk (some gnome lib) than is in Puppy.

I can't even find that reference:

I am not much help. Hopefully someone will look at this thread and spot the fix.

That's what I'm getting at Smile

Here's an alien package gpsdrive-2.10pre2.tar.gz. I happen to have some of those libs compiled so I gave it a stab.

Let me know if it works!! That was a rushed compile, I'll do it again after I investigate any options that are available or any problems are found.

I also plan to test next with a livecd boot. I have no GPS that I can attach to a desktop.[/url]

Here's an alien package (*edit, it was too big, give me like 10 minutes). I happen to have some of those libs compiled so I gave it a stab.

OK, downloaded and installed ... but where do I find it, please?

Was it supposed to overwrite the existing files or create a new parallel version, please?

I didn't restart X, perhaps I need to do that.

Sorry, I screwed up and uploaded the source. Embarassed

I fixed it now and tested. It seem to work.

Redownload, install and type "gpsdrive" at the shell. I just ran it on puppy 2.13beta2. It loads right up.
