I disabled all of the windows in Kismet>Preferences, but it doesn't run like it should. I am looking to have peripherals (RTL8187/BU-353) plugged in, connect power and go.

Thank you! Did some test runs at the shop and it ran as hoped minus feedback from GPSD.

While I watched the log, I didn't see anything regarding GPSD, will this run normally or does this need to be specified? If it needs to be named as an option, can you point me towards an example.

I have read the README file again but don't know which file to put the kismet_server options in.

Thank you again.
