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

    I live on a remote island and for a weather app to be useful it has to have wind speed and direction.
    I had a "LCD" lookalike widget that used to work but it had one major flaw. It had an arrow showing where the wind was going, not the direction it came from.
    (180 degrees opposite).

    If you live near the sea then always remember that tides go to, winds come from.

    So if my boat breaks down in a Westerly tide I will drift West.
    If it breaks down with a Westerly wind I will drift East.
    Got it?

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

    if anyone had a problem with worldweatheronline in the last few days


    fix is;

    go =>to sign in they will issue you with API number

    gedit /usr/share/my-weather-indicator/worldweatheronlineapi.py
    and change number on line 34


    more detailed


    install leafpad or mousepad they have line numbers

    sudo apt-get install leafpad
    then go

    leafpad /usr/share/my-weather-indicator/worldweatheronlineapi.py
    click options/line numbers now you have line numbers

    go to line 34 and put your new personal API instead of other one

    gkrell, gkrellweather, gkrellmoon, my-weather-indicator 13.04

    if any you have moved to 13.04 and installed MWI you may find [at least i do with gnome-fallback] that the moon phase info /forecast/and sunrise sunset times have gone and all is left is this

    If you are with unity and all is still there please comment would love to know one way or the other




    so not happy with that had a stroke of luck and found
    gkrellmoon [synaptic] which has in any case more info on moon phases than MWI


    [find it under Systems Tools[gnome] or dash[Unity] right click F1 for config and allow moonclock in plugins and untick all Builtins you do not wish to see]

    Hover on moon on applet for word info



    There is also gkrellweather which has a lot of info too




    So using MWI and gkrell in combination all is good again on 13.04 apart from forecast but that can be got from indicator-weather as can sunrise-sunset

    PLease comment if you found all is good anyway on MWI
    It has not been my experience thus far
