Is there a working code snippet for python to get the actual location via geoclue and dbus?

I found a thread with a code snippet, but can't get them running. Look at the last post on this site: http://mobilio.biz/origin/jww28

That is the only site i found a snippet with dbus, on all other sites they use qdbus. But i can't find a qdbus Version for Sailfish.

hm, found this: https://readthedocs.org/projects/python-geoclue/ - https://github.com/dplanella/python-geoclue this code uses dbus. I will try Jey's and this stuff out. Thank you

qdbus is at /usr/lib/qt5/bin/qdbus, I don't remember if I installed extra packages for that. If not there install qt5-qttools-qdbus.

This will output accuracy, position, timestamp, altitude:

/usr/lib/qt5/bin/qdbus --literal org.freedesktop.Geoclue.Providers.Here /org/freedesktop/Geoclue/Providers/Here org.freedesktop.Geoclue.Position.GetPosition
