As I continue to tune my Gnome Endeavor machine I noticed a service which I feel is unnecessary (the ‘geoclue.service’). I’ve been searching the various wiki’s and arch forums to see if I could find anything. So I thought I would handshake with our community to see if there is any advice.
I’ve also stolen\re-written some notes on how to do this just in case someone asks the same question as myself. Thank you.
