GPS tracking in Background - Edge Hack (Not Devel, Stable, RC)
A word of warning: if you forget to activate the terminal's "prevent app suspension" button, once the script is launched, there is no stopping it!!! The CTRL+C button at the bottom will not stop the script.
I meet the bug, doesn't appear on Edge but on Devel Yes.
I'll look at it.
Sorry, I guess I should have mentioned I'm on 16.04/rc.
BTW I tried to install git on UT, the package isn't available. I guess I could always git pull from my PC then copy to the phone, but I'm not seeing the gps-utouch-tracker folder from the PC, only the folders Documents, Music, Images and Videos...
From the phone terminal,
wget https://framagit.org/ernesst/gps-utouch-tracker/-/archive/master/gps-utouch-tracker-master.zip && unzip gps-utouch-tracker-master.zip
@ernest thanks, I guess keeping the original folder name (with -master) will make updating easier in the future.
All, i'm looking for good soul to test the last version, please contact me on Telegram : @Ernes_t
I've updated the script to : Consume less battery, import automatically the run to Activity Tracker when finished, upload the position in real-time to Phonetrack (Nextcloud) and distributed into a click.
I found recently thanks to iperspace, apparmor hack, the script should be able to run under all version.

Excellent ! Thank you very much @doniks
Latest version has been uploaded to openstore.
Please read prior use : https://github.com/ernesst/Utrack/blob/master/README.md
I think this app is very useful.
However, I can’t make it work.
I use an Aquaris E4.5 with ubuntu 16.04 (OTA11).
I used the previous script and now the recent updated script with no luck.
I have no issues with the installation, but when I launch the script, it gets stuck with “Waiting for satellites ...”.
When I close the app (Ctrl+C), it creates an empty gpx file.
The rest of apps (ActivityTracker, OSMScout) fetch the data and show my position, so I am sure that GPS is working properly.
What could be the cause?
Thank you for your suggestions.
i noticed that the script is neither working with OP3 device. I had to modify it to make it works.
Are you on telegram, if so please contact me @ern_st
