Taken from the replies to a similar post of mine (I think!) some time
back. Replace the exec call in the desktop file
(/usr/share/applications/tangogps) to this script.
The exports work around where tango cant seem to find its home config
This is my "car" script - sets up the FR so I can place it in a recess
of the dash in landscape mode. For walking i dont rotate the screen,
and allow suspend (just comment out the relevant lines).
One day I'll get around to replacing it with a c program using library
calls which will hopefully speed it up - I am using this script to
customise tango, mofi, FBreader etc.
Using shr-testing up to date a few days ago (as I am having problems
building my repo at the moment :)
