Weather Applet in LXDE

Post by deepak »

Dear LXDE Team,

In GNOME we have a weather display right? Do we have any equivalent weather gadget in LXDE?

I wish we had one just like in gnome where we get to set the preferences but it would be cool if it could detect the preferences base on the information we supplied during installation such as location, time, etc.

You can install Screenlets, don't use the Trash one though it will open up your browser window (needs work)

Code: Select all

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:screenlets/ppa 
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install screenlets
Then pick the ClearWeather one, and make sure on the lower left you FIRST check the box that says [Auto Start on Login]
Then put a check in the [Start/Stop] box

My solution was more than perfect: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... x-weather/
Because:

1. ever have FireFox opened
2. this addon has all!! customizable, full of data, nice, etc...

I recommend it.

dds a weather page to your phpBB website. The mod utilizes phpBB custom pages and the weather script from weatherforyou.com. Since the mod uses a phpBB custom page

The firefox weather addon mentioned above is excellent. You can also add a nice weather script to the openbox menu. See http://lxlinux.com/openbox.html#2 for details.

+1 seppalta. I have been using it since you made me aware of it. I haven't seen any other that has the available data that it has. You got good stuff. Don't stay away for so long. We need your lxde knowledge.
