    Re: HOWTO: VinDSL Conky Script

    too much talking . i just installed 1.9.0-2 , but nothing happened to gnome 3.4 . ( i am waiting the answer to figure out what i should do )
    this confusing . should i read and apply the the commands from the first comment ? or my new version contain them .
    this topic need some kind of guide on the first post to know what those 96 page , also to know that if there are some codes on the beginning that got changed now so i dont have to type it and miss with better and newer codes ..

    VanDSL was typing some codes on the first of this article . also some on the middle .
    i dont want to type the one on the beginning and find that they changed later on the middle and on another time at the end

    OK found that issue n kulled it - a degree symbol was getting through if you chose not to show units .

    Great! It doesn't affect anything that I can tell but it displays in terminal. So, I just wait on your next release of CONKYWX right? You are good!

    It's ironic how the weather channel cut us off a long time ago from getting weather from them when
    the wunderground website encourages you to get "rapid fire updates" as often as every 2.5 seconds.

    Edit: Oh paramvir, I was wondering if it might be possible to add UV so it displays for each day? It ranges from 1 to 12. I am always interested in the UV index.
    Pretty sure it is available on wunderground.
    Just a thought.

    Thanks for all you and VinDSL (and your other contributors) do!

    Thanks for the kind words

    Well - perhaps it is news for you but weather.com bought out wunderground mid last year - here is a NY times article http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/04/us...ange.html?_r=0 - all said and done - wunderground is happy they get more funding. Something like how Red Hat uses the Fedora project - wunderground with it's thousands of personal weather stations - gets more accurate weather. But - the main thing is weather.com in the future may also get wunderground to cut back - though they say they wont - but who knows - only Time will tell - if "Time" has that coverage ha ha ha

    Hey guess what - if you have seen my screen shots - they all have UV with how good or bad it is - same scale as you pointed to and not just for the day but for each update - it has been there from start go when I released the first conkywx - i feel wicked lol - check this screenshot - if it is not there or night it will show N/A



    Besides UV - the Astro stuff like sun moon twilight etc etc are calculated and NOT derived from wunderground - though the station position lat long and time zone are optionally picked from the site - you can put your own lat long and time zone [in conkywx config] to get your astro info for where you live. There was a time we all used to say RTFM ha ha ha lol now it would be more appropriate to say RTFW [W for wiki]

    Yes wunderground gets the feed at about 2.5 seconds and they update web pages very frequently - but just for sanity and server load - keep your updates to over 15 minutes - I have set mine to 30 minutes or so...

    cheers

    Thanks for the information. I didn't know weather.com bought wunderground.

    I don't have UV showing on mine and I almost feel I'm getting to old to figure that out.

    Guess I should RTFW lol!

    Cheers!
