Mint 16 and the weather applet

Postby tinker123 on Wed Dec 25, 2013 9:47 am

I am using Mint 14 nadia and GNOME.

I am thinking of upgrading to Mint 16.

I long ago gave up on the weather applet as running it continually crashed the desktop.

Has anyone noticed it not being a problem in Mint 16?

I gave up on the Gnome desktop a long time ago so I cannot help you there but ...
the weather applet in Linux Mint 16 with Cinnamon by mockturtl works perfectly without crashes.

I couldn't install mockturtl weather applet in LM16 cinnamon.

He even installs but won't start.

The installer has a bug.

Did you install it manually, or through the "More Applets" function? Also, did you restart Cinnamon after it installed?

Note that if you went to Cinammon Spices online and downloaded/installed it manually, you may have gotten the older applet that won't work in Cinnamon 2.

I am also having trouble with the weather applet (mint 1.6 cinnamon). Trying to "Get more online" applets just freezes like this: and downloading it manually ( ) gives no instructions on how to install it.

Any help appreciated :)
