Thread: How to remove Gnome-Location

    Default How to remove Gnome-Location

    With the zypper dup yesterday gnome added location sender to the system.
    How do you remove it?
    There is no obvious package to delete!
    How can you prioritise such a useless feature over plymouth bug fix?
    If I want geolocation I wouldn't have bothered with OpenSUSE, windows 10 has loads of that

    I don't know if you can remove gnome-location... this can broke some apps. Instead I recommend you to disable it in configuration > privacity

    Hi
    You shouldn't need to, it should go in the next update;
    https://build.opensuse.org/request/show/483183

    It is disabled anyway...

    Edit: I deleted some .local files and it disappeared
    Seriously is this running on some voodoo magic? Why doesn't the config files validate itself?
