Haven't had time until now, but the last few weeks the weather applets in my panel have become inoperative...I'm a little surprised not finding any recent posts about this...What's the skinny on this issue?
The data provider changed it's API scheme and a issue is already reported. You can fallow up here :
Thank you, I appreciate it
This is not an issue at all for those using
Works well and is quite more informative then the basic one coming with the clock.
The command from the other topic is a good workaround to make it work up to the moment it will be solved :
sudo sed -i 's|https://www.aviationweather.gov/adds/dataserver_current/httpparam|https://www.aviationweather.gov/adds/dataserver1_3/httpparam\x0\x0\x0\x0\x0|' $(readlink -f /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libmateweather.so.1)
As also @Watford told, you can use My-Weather-Indicator.
Good luck there
My weather applet is operating again, back to the way it was before it stopped...I didn't do anything to it, I was looking at the calendar when I noticed the selected world cities were displaying their weather information (mouse hover). It's great to see the weather forecast after a short hiatus!
Be great to have a clickable link or the name of the app in the repository. There is nothing under my-weather-indicator or My-Weather-Indicator. I cannot remember this name when opening a new tab: http://www.atareao.es. So... then it turns out it doesn't matter because it is just a homepage in language I cannot read with no sign of a weather app.
Just google and you'll find this:
Indications are pretty clear
The fact remains, it would be nice to have a direct link to something you are telling someone about versus saying "you can google it" like it was 1999. Thank you for letting people know about other options.
The fact remains that a web search (Google or otherwise) or going to askubuntu.com are some of the best and quick way to find something these days in 2020. Also, if you search the forum here (see the magnifier at the top right) you will also find other posts about My-Weather-Indicator.
The role of a forum, contributed by pears, is to help each other. And direct you some way so that you avoid searching around for a solution that may be handy or already found by someone else. And the role of this site (or the software boutique for that matter) is not to keep an inventory of all things and twists that may exist out there. It would be an impossible job to maintain.
Hence my reply, with the links, and that I thought useful.
