I'm trying to locate setting to turn on/off location services system-wide. Is there any way to to achieve that in elementary OS?

1 Answer 1


No, there doesn't appear to be a system-wide service to toggle (in /etc/init or /usr/bin), though elementary does have two open tickets for creating one: Add location settings and Create a GeoClue2 "Agent". There are open bounties for both, if you would like to contribute.
