Having used Manjaro (XFCE) for a number of years and been very satisfied, I have reached a problem. I installed Gnome Maps and was appalled that it new my location. I have tried to safeguard this very carefully and have been aware of browser issues, but now I discover that my system has been releasing my location without my knowledge. Strangely on my laptop which uses Linux Mint and Mate, then I was asked if I wanted to allow Gnome maps my location. I do not wish to use Linux Mint full time as I prefer Manjaro, but is there a way for me to disable geoclue. I tried to mask my precise location by using dconf to use my country rather than exact location, but this had zero affect.
Can you offer advice and possibly highlight this issue to other unaware Manjaro users. It would be great if it was possible to flick a switch to turn geoclue off and on, but I realise this is not as simple as it sounds.
Thanks in anticipation of your help.
