After having QGIS 2.x successfully installed on Fedora 20 (yum install qgis) only the QGIS itself seems to be installed. You may get errors when trying to fetch new Plug-ins (Python!) or you have an nearly empty Raster-menu (without the GDAL-Tools).

The app GoogleTracks for Android-Smartphones is an easy to use tool for logging GPS-Tracks with your phone – & it allows you to export the Tracks to GPS and KML. So it’s no problem to get your tracks in your GIS-Software.
How-To with QGIS 1.8
Export your Track to GPX in GoogleTracks on your phone
Copy the *.gpx on your computer (or by the way mail it from your phone 🙂 )
You can directly open the GPX in QGIS with „Add vector“
Attention: GPS-Data is saved in GCS WGS84 ! If you combine it with layers in your national CRS be aware of using the correct transformation-parameters !
