Just wanted to tell everybody that those of you having problems with weather part of you conky,
after weather.com switched to paid service and google dropped their aip, there is good news for you.
There is new working weather script for conky( based on Weather Underground website ) available here,
post number 404:http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... 33&page=41
page 41 of this thread there are instructions on how to incorporate weather section into conky based on this thread.
must have wget version 1.14
if your wget version is 1.12 ( for older mints ), need to modify conkywx script, very
easy, need to comment out 2 lines in conkywx.sh file, instruction in post #483 and 496 here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php? ... 33&page=50
comment out option --no-use-server-timestamps in wget function call in 2 places in conkywx.sh
to make the script work with older version of wget
( wget is a script to download website )
VinDSL ( user name ) has his own layout template that he is updating as that thread moves along,
some of you may want to tweak that template to your liking,
otherwise the script comes with many template layouts in the examples folder...
wiki for the package here, author Paramvir: https://bitbucket.org/plikhari/conkywx_pub/wiki/Home
Attached is my conky with conkywx weather section ( modified slimmer version of VinDSL's template layout )
Best of luck with it, as far as I know this is currently the only free reliably working weather script for conky, other scripts are either still in development or
