GEOCLUE	CONFIGURATION(5)      File Formats Manual     GEOCLUE CONFIGURATION(5)

NAME
       geoclue.conf - geoclue configuration parameters

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/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.desk-
	      top.agent-geoclue2

       [network-nmea]
	      Network NMEA source configuration	options

	      enable=true
	      Fetch location from NMEA sources on local	network?

       [3G]
	      3G source	configuration options

	      enable=true
	      Enable 3G	source

       [cdma]
	      CDMA source configuration	options

	      enable=true
	      Enable CDMA source

       [modem-gps]
	      Modem GPS	source configuration options

	      enable=true
	      Enable Modem-GPS source

       [wifi]
	      WiFi source configuration	options

	      enable=true
	      Enable WiFi source

	      url=https://location.services.mozilla.com/v1/geolocate?key=geo-
	      clue
	      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/sub-
	      mit?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 application.	This is	to en-
       sure  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	allow-
	      ing it for all users.

       Examples:
	      [gnome-datetime-panel]
	      allowed=true
	      system=true
	      users=

	      [gnome-color-panel]
	      allowed=true
	      system=true
	      users=

	      [org.gnome.Shell]
	      allowed=true
	      system=true
	      users=

	      [io.elementary.desktop.agent-geoclue2]
	      allowed=true
	      system=true
	      users=

	      [epiphany]
	      allowed=true
	      system=false
	      users=

	      [firefox]
	      allowed=true
	      system=false
	      users=
