Mint LMDE panel - weather applet

Postby DapperMe17 on Sat Oct 08, 2011 1:42 am

Good Morning,

Having just updated to LMDE from Mint 11, and ran update pack 3 flawlessly....I've noticed that the weather applet I've added to the gnome panel continues to say "updating", but never actually displays any weather. Also, the gnome clock applet weather will not display. Happily, this is the only function not working. :wink:

I've tested Docky's weather, which did not update either when pointed to The Weather Channel. However, when the settings source was changed to Underground Weather, it did successfully update.

My question....does the gnome weather applet use The Weather Channel by default, and if so, can that be changed (& how) to say....NOAA, or Underground Weather?

Just to double check, you have got your correct location and time information showing under 'Preferences'?

Yes, and I added, and removed the applet several times....with no luck. The applet constantly says "updating" when hovered upon.

I had a similar problem in LMDE Xfce which fixed itself when I updated the preferences and thought it might have helped you. Sorry mate, but that's as far as I can take you.
