    Default What weather software do you use?

    What weather apps do you use for Linux?

    Also I'm just wondering has anyone tried WeatherBug? If so what are your thoughts?

    I installed it on my Thinkpad R61 running Suse 11.1 and it was an easy install and the weatherBug widget is pretty nice and doesn't seem to be a big resource hog.

    But to be honest I haven't been running it that long. Only a few days.


    Live weather information and forecasts on Linux from WeatherBug.com Page
    Inquiring minds want to know?

    Can't go wrong with 1-ClickWeather for FireFox.

    I use the little widget in my taskbar for weather. Right-click on
    taskbar, add to panel, Weather Report. I'm using Gnome, btw.

    Good luck.

    Hi
    I agree, but I also use qgis and the real weather data from
    <http://radar.weather.gov/ridge/Conus/RadarImg/latest_radaronly.gif>
    along with the shape files for warnings etc from
    <http://www.nws.noaa.gov/regsci/gis/shapefiles/current_warnings.zip>
    all overlayed on a US template, works great

    Kweather and weatherbug extension in firefox. Weatherbug is more accurate where i live. I don't like the way weatherbug looks in the system tray.

    Kweather work for me in KDE 3.X. I think it's in the kdetoys package. Either that or kdeedu.
