you replied only to me privately and not the public list - so will

i do not have an answer for this - perhaps someone else has experience
with gnome - offhand, i can only say that if gnome really requires that
geo-location package then gnome will probably need to be added to the
'your-privacy' blacklist unless/until it can be made to run without it
the geo-location feature - so that installing 'your-privacy' will remove
gnome entirely - which could be very clumsy if gnome is the only desktop
