Description Andreas Bayer 2004-12-19 13:40:21 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.3.1)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages

I often change my position. I would like to have gps support in kstars, so that it will show the correct sky from my position.
Comment 1 kstars 2004-12-23 04:02:38 UTC
Excellent idea, adding to the TODO.

Comment 3 Jasem Mutlaq 2008-08-31 09:51:04 UTC
To be implemented in KStars for KDE 4.2
Comment 4 Jasem Mutlaq 2008-11-19 21:16:00 UTC
libindi is no longer part of KStars and therefore driver development is done outside KDE now. However, I assume that you own a GPS device that works with gpsd and willing to perform a few tests for a simple INDI driver that I intend to develop to support this feature?

Btw, KStars time & location can be polled from any INDI driver that provides the TIME_UTC and GEOGRAPHIC_COORDS properties (starting from KDE 4.2). But in order to communicate with gpsd, a new driver has to be developed and linked with libgps in order to extract these information from the device.

Please assign this bug to me. Actually, please assign all bugs currently assigned to kstars@30doradus.org to me.
Comment 6 Jasem Mutlaq 2009-08-25 17:18:23 UTC
Please raise the issue on INDI mailing list. An INDI driver needs to communicate to gpsd in order to send time/location information to KStars.
