Thread: Weather widget

  1. #1

    Default Weather widget

    Hi,

    Am running openSuse 12.1 32-bit with KDE. Every time I try to add the Weather forecast widget to my desktop, I get the following error and my desktop restarts.



    Anything I can do?

    Cheers all.

    So, what if instead, you right click on the System Tray, select System Tray Settings, and put a check by Weather Forcast? This is working for me. You can also make a bug report for the Plasma Widget. https://bugzilla.novell.com/index.cgi

    Same thing happens if I try that.

    I tried submitting a crash report, but it told me there wasn't enough useful information.

    So, don't know the problem, but perhaps you could tell us more about your PC, about the exact openSUSE version and Desktop installed and if this was a clean install and if you reused your /home partition or started afresh.

    It's openSUSE 12.1 32-bit with KDE (as mentioned in the first post). Running it on a Dell XPS M1330. It was a total clean install.

    I installed the same version of openSUSE on this laptop previously (a fortnight ago) and had the same problem. I was testing some other distros in the meantime, hence my latest re-install.

    Cheers.

    So I am using the 64 bit version and it is working. I must suggest you file a bug report as perhaps the Weather Stuff does not work in the 32 bit version of KDE.

    I'm using yawp, available through 1-click install.

    It's similar to the old kweather and far better, IMO, than the plasmoids
    that come as standard,
