Thread: Good weather applet

  1. #1

    Default Good weather applet

    I am looking for a good weather applet for my desktop. I am running opensuse 11 with kde 4.0 and a ppc processor.

    The one in 4.0. is broken
    In 4.1 it is fine

    Other than that you will need to use superkaramba

    I don't know if this will fit your definition of 'good' but it is the only plasmoid for weather that I know about, and it fits my needs.

    Software.openSUSE.org

    I think you could probably install the Liquid Weather karamba applet with plasma too, if that is more to your liking.

    I am using it. Sometime ago it stop updating the weather forecast but there is a patch in the gdesklets site to make it work.

    Just install gdesklets and download the goodweather applet and your good to go

    Hope this helps

    Gee, I wouldn't mind an applet to make the weather good.

    Ok, ok I'll go away now.

    Yeah it is nice to always have a good weather that's why goodweather is the applet to go

    I grew tired of weather applets eventually and started using the forcastfox add-on in Firefox...never looked back.

    harryc56 is right
    I use the applet just for aesthetics to desktop
    I always have the xfce weather update on the right side of the upper xfce-panel and it is more than enough

    Thanks for the pointer. Installed and it's very nice. Previously I used LiquidWeather in SuperKarumba. This works better.
