    When I first installed openSUSE 12.3, the weather icon did have a problem. Seems like I could set it and on reboot it did not work, but after a few updates, I have not seen it do that any more. Perhaps you have not done a full online update since you installed openSUSE 12.3? Here is what I do and suggest:

    To fully upgrade, I would do the following tasks for openSUSE 12.3 using KDE:

    1. Go to YaST (Enter Root Password) / Software / Software Repository and specify the URL addition of the Packman Repository "Index of /suse/openSUSE_12.3/" excluding the quotes if not already done.
    2. Go to YaST (Enter Root Password) / Software / Software Management and select Options and check Allow Vendor Change.
    3. Again, still in Software Management select Package / All Packages / Update if newer version available and press the Accept button on the bottom right.

    You only need to do items 1 & 2 one time each. You can performs item 3 every time you run YaST to see if updates exist, even right now.

    Thank You,

    I have not had it crash, but it doesn't work.

    While running opensuse 12.2 (I think that was KDE 4.8.7), the weather forecast tray applet worked very well. With 12.3 (both 4.10.00 and 4.10.2), it usually works for a while after I configure it. And then it stops updating.

    I tried the LCD weather widget. It also stops updating after a while.

    I have given up on both.

    So the Weather icon is working for me now. At first, you could configure it to work and on the next restart, it would stop working, but it keeps working for me now on each restart. Here it is tonight:

    I also use the YAWP plasmoid in 12.3 and it works well.
    I've had similar problems in openSUSE and/or Fedora 18 with weather plasmoids.
    In some cases they are not able to reload themselves, even acting manually (for instance, when you resume the machine from a suspension state).
    It's probably a problem within plasma desktop.
    Restarting plasma solves the problem:
    Code:
    kquitapp plasma-desktop
    plasma-desktop
