I'm working on a completely different project and there is gpsd data interfering.
sudo killall gpsd
sudo apt-get remove gpsd gpsd-clients #testing....tested fine
sudo apt-get autoremove # as recommended by apt
sudo apt-get gpsd gpsd-clients #answer yes to python and lib20
In bios set gps to other than auto ...#I'm hacking a bios locked 52 so can't go there now.
OUT OF ORDER.....in terminal send $groups # to see if you are in dialout group
gun@GUNBP2M ~/Desktop $ groups
gun adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape sudo audio dip video plugdev netdev fuse lpadmin scanner sambashare
gun@GUNBP2M ~/Desktop $
The first word is you, the rest are the groups you have access to. adm is supposed to cover it all but I add dialout anyway. Dialout includes access to tty. Check this to see if I am clear.
There's a quote somewher by berlios "sanity check"...I'll find it...wait one....heh! guess who. http://forum.notebookreview.com/panason ... ost9484075
On a CF-30MK3...using Navigatrix 0.5 June (newest version) 14.04
Okay, on the trusted CF-19 using Navigatrix, to type this up now:
Followed Jeff's advice and went into bios (f2) during booting, and changed gps to "enable" instead of "auto". I also temporarily disabled BT and Parallel Ports.
There are four manual choices to set: 3E8/IRQ11, 3F8/IRQ4, 2F8/IRQ3, 2E8/IRQ10.
I went through and tried each manual setting, followed by re-booting.
This one worked for me, but the MK2 might be different: 3E8/IRQ11
Bingo, voila, yes....xgps locked in the sats and foxtrotgps found my position instantly!
Give it a go, and let us know!
