Bug Description

The location service logging setup puts log files in /var/log/ubuntu-location-service. Currently, the directory isn't created, though, and we loose valueable debugging information.

I'm still missing this directory on E5. I bought it, I believe, with OTA-8, but noticed that it is missing at OTA-10.1 (because only at that time I started to debug issues). OTA-11 updated and there is still no /var/log/ubuntu-location-service . I have created it manually, but it is not filled.

Hi Vincas, things have changed in respect to how location service logs its activity: the log files are now found in /var/log/upstart/ubuntu-location-service.log
