Description Alexandre Ducastaing 2021-11-08 16:56:19 UTC
Description of problem:
geoclue doesn't start on boot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
$ rpm -qa | grep geoclue2

How reproducible:
# systemctl enable geoclue
The unit files have no installation config (WantedBy=, RequiredBy=, Also=,
Alias= settings in the [Install] section, and DefaultInstance= for template
units). This means they are not meant to be enabled using systemctl.
Possible reasons for having this kind of units are:
• A unit may be statically enabled by being symlinked from another unit's
  .wants/ or .requires/ directory.
• A unit's purpose may be to act as a helper for some other unit which has
  a requirement dependency on it.
• A unit may be started when needed via activation (socket, path, timer,
  D-Bus, udev, scripted systemctl call, ...).
• In case of template units, the unit is meant to be enabled with some
  instance name specified.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.# systemctl enable geoclue
3.$ redshift

Unable to start GeoClue client: GDBus.Error:org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.AccessDenied: 'redshift' disallowed, no agent for UID 1000.
Access to the current location was denied by GeoClue!
Make sure that location services are enabled and that Redshift is permitted
to use location services. See https://github.com/jonls/redshift#faq for more
Impossible d'obtenir une localisation du fournisseur.

Actual results:
$ systemctl status geoclue
○ geoclue.service - Location Lookup Service
     Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/geoclue.service; static)
     Active: inactive (dead)

Expected results:
geoclue should be activated on boot.

Additional info:
"# systemctl start geoclue" works.
