In Ubuntu 12.04, one of the Gnome 2 applets that I miss the most is the Gnome Weather Report applet.
I like the fact that this applet provides:
(a) a screen with a summary of current local weather conditions,
(b) a separate screen that displays the forecasts of the pertinent weather office (in my case, the U.S. Weather Bureau’s forecasts for Austin) for the current day and several upcoming days, and
(c) an optional third screen with a recent radar scan of the local weather conditions.
In Ubuntu 11.04, I was running this applet in the following version:
“Weather Report 18.104.22.168
A panel application for monitoring local weather conditions.
© 1999-2005 by S. Papadimitriou and others”
I have experimented with at least half a dozen weather applets that run under Gnome 3, but so far I have not found one with the same amount of detail (especially, items (b) and (c) above) as the Weather Report Applet for Gnome 2.
The following URL:
seems to me to imply that versions of the Gnome Weather Applet may have been written for Gnome 3. Specifically, this URL lists editions of manuals for versions identified as “3.2.1”, “3.4.1”, and “3.5.1 (development version)”. But, I have not been able to find a source for the software (as opposed to the manuals) for these versions.
I’m sure that some of the viewers of this Forum are more familiar than I am with how and from where to obtain Gnome 3 applications. Can anyone tell me how to obtain a copy of Gnome Weather Report Applet v. 3.2.1 or 3.4.1 (or tell me whether these versions are actually written for Gnome 3)?
Any and all help will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance.
