    Default XFCE weather applet says "no data"


    It can not get weather data.

    Has the "provider" changed the "api" so that the tool does not work, or is it a bug?
    I have two installations with the same problem, so it is not likely a user error.

    It doesn't work - on any distro I have before my eyes - among others, Fedora, ArchLinux, Mandriva. It hasn't worked for months.

    It really doesn't work for sometime now.
    It was a problem with the weather server.
    There was an announcement in the xfce site regarding this
    almost a year now.

    In xfce 4.10 it is now called weather update
    I have not used it since I upgraded to xfce 4.10 as I am using the cairo-dock weather.
    A while ago I tried adding it in xfce-panel and found-out that it is now working.

    How can that be?

    I thought that weather applications ask directly data from web weather services, parsing the web
    pages they load. If that page changes the layout, all applets in all desktops and versions stop
    working simultaneously.

    Unless xfce uses an intermediate server to query weather services, and it is that server which does
    not work. :-?


    Then nothing can be done :-(

    I don't know exactly how to verify the xfce version, the about box does not say. Ah, yes! 4.8. So I
    can not have it.

    Cairo-dock? Is that not a KDE thing?

    First from your post after mine
    If memory serves the xfce panel-plugin stop due to the weather server change the policy
    from free to pay per usage. Probably it is working now because they were able to find another server
    but not sure about this because I haven't got the time looking into xfce news this days.

    Cairo-dock works on KDE and xfce and I noticed, it works better in xfce. ( see my screenshots in the screenshot section)

    :-?
    Try xfce 4.10 and see if the xfce panel-weather update-plugin will work for you too.
