When I activated Gnome Location Services, it said no apps were requesting location services.
I then started Gnome Maps. The location services (that runs by default on every Gnome running distro I’ve ever used) were inactive. I rechecked with Gnome Location Services (found in Gnome Settings). It still says no apps are requesting location services.
I don’t know how to get these two apps (or whatever the term is) to work together as they should.
Is there a firewall or user permission or usergroup issue? I’m clueless.
I have the exact same problem.
It’s broken again. If it opens (maybe 50% of the attempts to get it to do so), Gnome-maps takes an exceptionally long time to open. Location services are not working in the app when it opens.
Any suggested fixes?
on leap 15.3 maps takes more than a minute to start. I thought it was dead but it started up after I had figured it was inactive and I had already gone on to something else.
Started from a terminal, it threw no error messages. My computer is 5820k series i7 intel, 32 gig memory, nvidia geforce gtx 1050 graphics, and plenty of disk space. Moderately modern and fast computer.
