What is so difficult about a weather app?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 22, 2013
I cannot believe that a simple thing like a weather app is hard to find.
The app in the Software Centre is broken even though Launchpad says that it's fixed. When trying to add a location you get to "Apply" then it hangs and generates "Ubuntu had an internal error".
I'm running a fully updated Ubuntu 12.04
$ uname -a
Linux snappy 3.8.0-32-generic #47~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Oct 2 16:19:35 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have reported this at Launchpad but I still cannot find a solution.
On AskUbuntu there are various answers but none of these "weather" apps show me want I want to know.
I want to know the wind speed and direction for the day. Where I live the weather is determined by the speed and direction of the wind and it changes quite often.
The technical term for it is "hyper-oceanic". For the current wind direction I can look
Weather app / indicator for lxde lubuntu low memory also provides volume settings
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2012
I will try to keep this thread updated for this super simple solution for desktop weather & forecasts for anyone running lxde lubuntu or just want a lightweight virtually no memory solution to one click weather for your os.
First for Lubuntu I always stick with the LTS release.. Although there hasn't been an official one yet 12.04 is the defacto LTS release for Lubuntu.
That being said if your running 12.10 your instructions will be slightly different but not much...
These instructions actually provide two solutions, the installation of xterm which is required actually fixes the default volume settings when selected from the volume icon in the panel.. screenshot attached... no more need for pavcontrol or gnome-mixer. When you right click on the volume icon in Lubuntu and select volume settings alsamixer will be open within an xterm window.
Now onto getting the weather app/indicator working.
Here is everything that needs to be installed first.
Open your terminal and enter the
Cannot install from repositories or use pidgin or weather app internet works fine!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 24, 2009
I can use the internet fine on my Ubuntu 9.10 install and the other day the weather applet and repository installs were working fine.
I am at a friends house using their ADSL and I can access the net fine (I'm writing from the machine now!) but the weather applet doesnt update, Pidgin won't connect and the repositories won't install anything.
The firewall is turned off on the router so what could be causing this? Says the connection times out? Is there any way of diagnosing where the problem may be? Seems too much of a coincidence for all 3 to be down... Does Ubuntu have problems switching between wireless networks?

Ubuntu 12.10 Simple Looking for simple Weather App
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 9, 2013
I am looking for a simple weather app for the Ubuntu 12.10 desktop in the same style used by Windows Vista and Windows 7 mini-apps (or whatever they were called). Just displaying today's weather and a forecast after choosing your location.
Installing instructions would be great too, unless there is something to be found in the software centre already, then I can manage on my own. IF Ubuntu and Gnome support this at all.

Python: Weather app suitable for beginner?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 21, 2010
After trying several weather apps which either don't recognise my location or fetch only some of the information I want, I'm playing with the idea of trying to write one in python.
Want it to display temperature, wind chill, wind direction and strength, rainfall and where it's sunny/raining/cloudy etc for my city; figure I can add other cities in future if I'm happy with the way it turn out.
Is this a suitable project for a beginner, or am I setting my sights too high? Biggest concern I have is that I've done nothing with a gui before, so I'm not expecting to have it done in an afternoon.
Any thoughts gratefully received,
Unity weather app?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 24, 2011
Ok not a huge issue. I have been using 11.04 for a while now but have been using the Classic Interface. I decided to go head on into Unity and I miss my weather next to my time. I'm wondering if there is an option for showing weather on the taskbar. If so, how do I enable it. Thanks so much.
