Right now I've done this:
# apt-get install libexif12 libcurl3-gnutls libgconf2-4 gpsd
# sed -i 's/DEVICES=""/DEVICES="\/dev\/ttySAC1"/' /etc/default/gpsd
# sed -i 's/START_DAEMON="false"/START_DAEMON="true"/' /etc/default/gpsd
# wget http://www.tangogps.org/downloads/tangogps_0.99.2-1_armel.deb-Openmoko
-O tangogps_0.99.2-1_armel.deb
# dpkg -i tangogps_0.99.2-1_armel.deb
# reboot

Then I changed the paths in /opt/qtmoko/bin/gps-poweron.sh and
/opt/qtmoko/bin/gps-poweroff.sh to

I'm using v20. I think the paths are different in v21.

And if I want to use tangogps I click "Turn on GPS" in Devtools menu.
The  /opt/qtmoko/bin/gps-poweron.sh script is not executed
automatically when I run tangogps. Should it be?
