Venus OS - How is GPS setup and data parsed?

Hello,

I am have downloaded and installed the Venus OS packages onto Raspbian and they seem to run OK.

I also want to get a GPS I have (ttyUSB1) connected to the Rpi to parse data to the VRM portal. There is no instructions for this on the packages website.

Does anyone know how this is being done? Is it via D-bus somehow?

If someone could at least steer me in the right direction I might have a hope of getting this to go.

Thanks

Al

Hi, try installing the precompiled dbus-gps package.


to compile it yourself you need access to a library the we cant make openly available

I suspect it is something to do with :

https://github.com/victronenergy/dbus_gps

But after downloading and unzipping this repo I try ./configure and I get:

root@sunrisepi:~/gps/dbus_gps-master# cd software/

root@sunrisepi:~/gps/dbus_gps-master/software# ls

configure ext gps_dbus.pro inc rules.mk src

root@sunrisepi:~/gps/dbus_gps-master/software# ./configure

./configure: 3: ./configure: ./ext/velib/mk/init_build.sh: not found

root@sunrisepi:~/gps/dbus_gps-master/software#
