Hello! I have a strange problem, everything seems to work but sytem log is constantly getting spammed with messages:
Code:
дек 11 17:38:26 Yoga3Pro geoclue[3945]: (geoclue:3945): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_variant_ref_sink: assertion 'value->ref_count > 0' failed
дек 11 17:38:26 Yoga3Pro geoclue[3945]: (geoclue:3945): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_variant_unref: assertion 'value->ref_count > 0' failed

Using iio-sensor-proxy from github too, if it helps...

This indicates at least one bug in geoclue. In my opinion, it also indicates at least one bug in GLib, which should not be flooding the system log with assertion messages. The proper handling for assertions is to raise SIGABRT so that the problem gets addressed before it is released to unsuspecting users. You should report these errors to the geoclue maintainer.

Those are common errors for gtk apps, bc gtk is ... gtk.
Probably it might not happen on older/newer gtk version. Or maybe u compiled gtk with debug?
Just dont use gtk apps :D
