    a very nice applet :: my-weather-indicator

    if you like a lot of data on your weather forecast you probably will enjoy this here: i have just installed it instead of indicator-weather and it shows much more

    Code:
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao

    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    Code:
     sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator

    then to applications/accessories and set your prefs [pick autostart in general options]



    and you get this

    Re: a very nice applet :: my-weather-indicator

    after a while the google weather info went dead; reading around i found this trick



    Code:
    sudo apt-get --reinstall install my-weather-indicator


    basically updates it


    google info still not available but now there is World Weather Online on the most recent version and that is even better than Google it seems...

    Is this the one that sets by the system clock? I am running Unity with a Cinnamon Desktop.

    Re: a very nice applet :: my-weather-indicator

    My "my-weather-indicator" had also stopped working. I re-installed as recommended above, but it only started working after I deleted the directory ~/.config/my-weather-indicator in my home directory. Re-starting my-weather-indicator then gave me new options and it now works again.
