Due to the risk of having the previously registered xoap weather.com account terminated because of high volumes of requests, I have upgraded the script to use a users own registered details.
A template config file exists which holds all the settings used by the script, and most importantly, stores the partner id and registration code for the weather.com xoap service.
It can be found here "/usr/share/conkyforecast/conkyForecast.config"
For a working script you NEED to define, in a user specific config file, a partner id and registration code for the weather.com xoap service. For this purpose the config file should be copied to "~/.conkyForecast.config" and setup as required.
To register and obtain the necessary codes you need to visit the following url and fill out the form: http://www.weather.com/services/xmloap.html
After successfully completing the form, you will then receive a couple of
emails providing you with the necessary codes to update these settings with, along with the software development kit and terms and conditions.
To copy and edit the config file, using the command line , run the following two commands in a terminal, one after the other:
cp /usr/share/conkyforecast/conkyForecast.config ~/.conkyForecast.config
