Weather Widget

The weather widget on kde4.3 is not working. this is apparently due to a change in the BBC rss link info. Is there a method of fixing it?

Not heard of one yet but you may be able to find something out on Index page • KDE Community Forums

I have had a look, and there is a solution for ubuntu, but opensuse does not have the same file structure

Oh, in opensuse, you only replace this link /home/user/.kde/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc by another link as “/home/user/.kde4/share/config/plasma-desktop-appletsrc”. Then you do following next steps.
I can use weather widget by this method.
Best regard

you could try downloading CWP - an alternative, highly configurable weather plasmoid. It’s available in the repos through Yast.
