troubles with weather application

Post by victorsk »

Hi folks,

Finally upgraded my LMDE to have gnome 3. Unfortunately, installing weather app in gnome 3 never worked well for me. This time, I tried following instructions on this site: ... x-mint-11/

and when I try to run:

Code: Select all

apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-weather
I get this error:

Code: Select all

E: Unable to locate package gnome-shell-extensions-weather
Does anybody please have a suggestion on the most effective way to install the weather app in LMDE Gnome 3 environment?

Thank you very much,

I'm so looking forward to a Gnome 3 app for weather, too, but alas, the site you linked to is for Ubuntu-based versions of Linux Mint and I, like you, am running LMDE. The Ubuntu ppa's are not (necessarily) compatible with Debian and there is risk to adding them to our Debian-based system repos.

I'm not sure what is taking Gnome developers so much time to make this. 3rd parties have done it in distribution-specific ways, so why not in Gnome? Did it really take this long to get a weather app in Gnome 2? We are already at Gnome 3.4 with Gnome 3.6 on the horizon. Good grief!!!

Here's to hoping.
