GeocodeGlib/geocode-glib is a convenience library for the geocoding (finding longitude, and latitude from an address) and reverse geocoding (finding an address from coordinates). It uses Nominatim service (from openstreetmap.org ) to achieve that. It also caches (reverse-)geocoding requests for faster results and to avoid unnecessary server load.
- On linux an older version of libgeocode-glib0 (3.18.2) causes segmentation faults when pressing the search button.
- Please update to a newer version of that library. For example:
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/g/geocode-glib/libgeocode-glib0_126.96.36.199-4ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb apt-get install ./libgeocode-glib0_188.8.131.52-4ubuntu0.18.04.1_amd64.deb
