[Marble-devel] Re: Show GPS Position in MarbleWidget

Hello again,

I solved the issue yesterday myself. If anybody else is interested: The path specified on http://edu.kde.org/marble/current.php was incorrect for me. Instead of -I /usr/lib/kde4/plugins/marble/ it was -I /usr/local/lib/kde4/plugins/marble. Consequently the QML version of MarbleWidget is now working and I am back on trying to show the GPS position.

However, I still have another question: It seems to me like the QML MarbleWidget only offers very few of the methods of the normal MarbleWidget. I checked MarbleDeclarativeWidget and for example for map interaction there is only zoomIn() and zoomOut(), neither any of the move-methods nor centerOn() is implemented. Is that on purpose or am I missing something? I ask this because I am thinking about extending the class with some of the methods to better fit my requirements and I do not want to mess something up or implement stuff that I can find somewhere else.

Best regards
