Re: unable to get kml_filter.py working

Glad you got it working, but we strongly recommend not installing dependencies or running the script as sudo.
The script lists its dependencies at the top of the file, and a virtual environment will help you partition those dependencies as well as protect yourself.

Re: unable to get kml_filter.py working

perhaps

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2543&p=9627&hilit=pip#p9627

will help?

python like having a virtual environment to install all the libraries so they don't conflict at a system level (and so you don't need to run things w/ sudo, which can be scary)

Dan Kaminsky

The hacking and security community has lost a kind and brilliant voice. You will be missed, Dan Kaminsky. Let's honor his memory being the mad scientists we want to see in the world.

Re: Creating a driving rig

well, you've come to the right place! I won't presume to choose between the many projects posted to this forum, but a search for "rig" should give you a fun survey! Assuming you're using modern kismet, you'll need more than a pi W zero (I use 2016 kismet on one of those with an eInk display as a "ke...

Re: last 4 uploads stuck on trilaterating...

probably more to do with our back-end systems than how you upload - it all passes through the same channel.

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Pausing the scan stops the WiFi scanner; cycling the WiFi radio is a more power-intensive operation than running the GPS. If you're not moving, Pausing the scan is a fine idea. There isn't currently a way to clear the run or new count, since those numbers indicate "since the app was started this tim...

Re: Map does not show in Xubuntu 20.04LTS VM in FF or Chrome

good thing - that would be a hard one for us to debug!
ESRI's mapping core works most places most of the time, not sure how we'd get them to change anything!

Cheers, and thanks for your interest!

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Hm, ok - So this changes the pathology. It's common to lose and regain GPS with some frequency; that's not necessarily a cause for alarm. What's uncommon in this description is the WiFi jamming; that's bad. If that's happening frequently, it would absolutely explain your issues, and there are severa...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

which GPS jam message are you seeing?

We have:
no GPS fix
No GPS detected in device!
Please turn on GPS
but the only time we mention jamming actively is WiFi not GPS:
WiFi appears jammed, turning off, and then on, WiFi.
let us know which message you're seeing?

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

This is bad news - obviously your phone's from a big manufacturer, but I can't reproduce the problem on my devices (from them or otherwise), or explain this simply. It's true that if the OS stops background activities, we can't detect or overcome that easily, but it's strange that this is happening ...

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

It sounds like you've covered the bases; I worry this is going to be a tough one.

Keep us posted with the results of these initial checks, drive safe, and we'll get this problem solved.

Re: WiGLE location no longer runs in 'background'

Hm, there's a lot to unpack there. Thanks for the bug report, let's dig in. Notes/questions: 1. the GPS toast probably pops up a lot saying "found location"/"lost location" - I'd treat that as a red herring, but the first suggestion below will give you a sense of how accurate your location is over t...
