  gpsd always runs in 'non-daemonised' or not at all

Status in gpsd package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The systemd unit file


  starts gpsd with the '-N' flag for a non-daemonised instance.

  Removing the flag prevents systemd from calling the gpsd at all.

  The service needs the removal of the '-N' flag so the gpsd can fully
  function, and insertion of 'Type=forking' to enable it to read its own
  configuration file '/etc/default/gpsd'

  Attached is a patch, if I've done it correctly.
