[Kde] Weather Plasma Widget not finding your city?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 13, 2009
So there were some changes on recently to the way BBC delivers their weather info in their rss feeds. This has caused a breakage in the "search" of the plasma-widget. This will probably be fixed in lucid, but right now if you lose your plasma configuration or accidentally delete the weather widget, there is no way to get it to find your city.
There is a workaround. It involves finding the new rss feed and giving it directly to your plasma-appletsrc file. Here is what you do.
Part 1 getting the rss link:
0. Set your weather plasmoid using NOAA.
1. Navigate using your preferred webbrowser to the BBC weather website: http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/
2. Search for your city.
3. On the left hand side there is an Observations Box, it looks like this :
4. click on the rss link, copy the rss link
Part 2 (editing your plasma-appletsrc).
1. Open Kate (or do this from vim or nano or ed)
2. Open /home/user/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc
3. Scroll down un
[SOLVED] Unable to remove LCD Weather Station Widget
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 23, 2014
I am running Kubuntu 14.04, using the "Add Widget" option I selected the LCD Weather Station Widget & placed it on the panel next to the clock, I noticed straight away that instead of a nice looking icon it turned to a grey square, never the less I configured it by entering my location, but when I click the icon it displays no information at all so I decided to remove it but when I right click the icon there is no "remove" option so I am now stuck with an ugly looking icon that does nothing.
If anyone can help I would be very grateful however being a newbie I'm not too confident with terminal commands so I will need clear step by step instructions.
In Windows if you screw up there's always the system restore option, is there anything similar in Linux?
[SOLVED] Awesome window manager clock widget.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 3, 2011
Hey currently I am using the Awesome window manager and the clock widget is in 24 hour time. I want to get it to be set to a 12 hour clock but I am unable to figure it out. Any ideas?
EDIT: I was able to edit the clock widget's script itself. I forgot about that. I changed H:M to l:M

Is there an animated weather Radar applet? I've tried all the ones on the screenlet page and none of them show an animated doppler weather image.
Does anyone know of such a widget\screenlet for Ubuntu?
Thanks in advance!

Australian Weather Desktop Widget / Applet ?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 20, 2008
Hello, I am after a desktop applet, widget or something similar for local city weather here in Australia.
The Weather Report Panel in Gnome is used by weather.com and takes it's forecast from the airport, which is at least 30 Km's away, and so does the forecastfox in firefox and also the Weather Applet in Awn.
They are always incorrect for the metro area, so I would like one that uses capital cities, or even better uses http://www.bom.gov.au , Australia's Bureau of Meteorology.
So is there any Australian city weather widget/applet for Linux as in windows and mac ?

anyone know how to do this? is there a config file somewhere?
edit: should say that this is for rhel5
Synchronize Linux System clock to Windows NTP Service
- date: January 1, 1970
I have a linux PC acting as a clock client and I would like to synchronize this PC's time using ntpdate against a Windows PC in the same space on the same network. I'm having trouble finding how to do this.
It isn't as easy as just calling ntpdate and using the IP address of the windows PC it would seem although I thought that the Windows Time service was an NTP server. You can see the results of that effort below:
:~$ sudo ntpdate -u 192.168.1.100
1 Apr 09:49:03 ntpdate: no server suitable for synchronization found
Can anyone suggest how I would do this synchronization? Perhaps the proper windows service hasn't been started? In the above axample, this command is being run on the client PC (linux) and 192.168.1.100 is the IP if the windows PC. No firewall is on currently.
Weather and World Clock apps?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 1, 2011
I wonder if there are any good weather and world clock applications in the new Ubuntu 11.04.
I had previously a relatively OK weather and world clock set up on the Time & Date Setting section of my screen on the upper right corner of the toolbar menu where I could add different cities across the world and get their times and weather.
Since the update, I no longer see that option.
Even prior to the update the program wasn't all that great when compared to softwares in Mac or Windows for instance.
I wonder if people have good experience with other applications which can tell the time and weather (w/ 3, 5, or 7 day forecast) of different places across the globe. Right now, I don't even have a program to tell me the weather in my own town. Any tips would be most appreciated.
