NAME
       geoclue.conf - geoclue configuration parameters

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/geoclue/geoclue.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The geoclue geoclue.conf configuration file specifies parameters that control the operation of geoclue.

       All  configurations  settings below are mandatory and the defaults are what you see before you edit them in geoclue.conf. If
       you want to keep the default values around, copy and comment out the appropriate line(s) before changing them.

AGENT CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       [agent] is used to begin the agent configuration.

       whitelist
              Whitelist of desktop IDs (without .desktop part) of all agents we recognise, separated by a ';'.

              whitelist=geoclue-demo-agent;gnome-shell;io.elementary.desktop.agent-geoclue2

              Enable Modem-GPS source

       [wifi]
              WiFi source configuration options

              enable=true
              Enable WiFi source

              url=https://location.services.mozilla.com/v1/geolocate?key=geoclue
              URL to the wifi geolocation service. The key can currenty be anything, just needs to be present but  that  is  likely
              going to change in future.

              submit-data=false Submit data to Mozilla Location Service
              If set to true, geoclue will automatically submit network data to Mozilla each time it gets a GPS lock.

              submission-url=https://location.services.mozilla.com/v1/submit?key=geoclue
              URL to submission API of Mozilla Location Service

              submission-nick=geoclue
              A nickname to submit network data with. A nickname must be 2-32 characters long.

APPLICATION CONFIGURATION OPTIONS
       Having  an  entry  here for an application with allowed=true means that geoclue will not ask agent to authorize the applica‚Äź
       tion. This is to ensure that applications with built-in authorization mechanism (e.g web browsers) do not have to  be  bound
       to agents.

       If  your  application  is  denied  access to location information and your operating system doesn't provide any mechanism to
       change that, it is likely a bug in your operation system (or geoclue). The solution is to report the issue with all details,
       rather than adding your application to this list.

       Format:
              [random-app]
              Desktop ID of application without .desktop part

              allowed=true|false
              Allowed access to location information?

              system=true|false
              Is application a system component?

              users=
              List  of UIDs of all users for which this application is allowed location info access, separate by ';'. Keep it empty
              for allowing it for all users.

              [gnome-datetime-panel]
              allowed=true
