On an old configuration (LM 13), Weather applet is displayed in English and not in French (the language configured for the system). How to force it in my language?

Just managed to install it again, and now it works! The WOEID changed too, strange that my old one was working in Mint 18, but not here on Mint 17.3. However, it does works with a newer one.

After using it since my previous comment, out of the blue the applet wouldn’t retrieve my location any more, and ANY other location for that matter. I tried to contact mockturtl twice (I translated for the project in Italian, French and Spanish, so we were already in touch) but never got a reply, I wonder if he ever got my email.
I just deactivated it, and forgot about it. Until this morning, preparing a live USB key for a friend with Linux Mint Cinnamon 18 – 64, I was setting up the persistence, and decided to give the applet a try. It worked right away with his WOEID, tried with mine, and it worked. I then restarted to check in my system, but it didn’t work, so I uninstalled the applet and tried to reinstall it from teh Applets manager. Here in Mint 17.3 it says:
“An error occurred while trying to access the server.
Please try again in a little while.
Details: HTTP Error 404: Not Found”
Since 3 hours ago.
I downloaded the applet again from the site now, and I’m trying to work out how to install it, hoping it will work.

The resulting degree in weather is completely messed up now. It's showing 11F and it's around 65F.

The Yahoo weather API is a mess.
The WOEID for Canberra has changed AGAIN in this past week. The old code ASXX0023 changed to 1100968 a few weeks ago and now it has changed again to 12707125.

And the feed is showing the temperature right now as -1C when in fact its -4C.
The same erroneous figure is showing at https://www.yahoo.com/news/weather/ whereas if you go to Yahoo's other site at https://weather.yahoo.com.au/local-forecast/act/canberra it shows the correct temperature.

Seems to me that Yahoo weather developers have screwed up royally and so the weather applet is regrettably useless to me unless/until Yahoo get their s**t in one sock.

Hi! After clicking on the applet menu and choosing the configure button, the window with all available/installed applets opens, but not the options window. Both on 1.12.5 and 1.13.1. Cinnamon 2.8.8, Mint 17.3. Editing ~/.cinnamon/configs/weather@mockturtl/58.json doesn't help.

The link (http://woeid.rosselliot.co.nz/) to get the WOEID no longer works - the site has a message "WOEID Lookup is being redeveloped to modern web standards. The new site will present the same data in a more user-friendly manner."

I found this site: http://zourbuth.com/tools/woeid/ where you can type in your town and it gives the correct WOEID (at least for me in Canberra)

mikefreeman - yes I have same issue with sunrise/sunset times

robyn0800 - yes you're right, the yahoo api is returning the pressure figure in mbar even though the doco says it returns pressure in Hg. This is obviously a yahoo error.
-

I just noticed that when it displays the Sunrise/Sunset times, the time isn't displayed correctly. For example, instead of displaying the Sunset time as 8:07pm, it shows 8:7pm.

Using "https://developer.yahoo.com/weather/#codetable=" and entering mu local WOEID I can see the units returned by yahoo weather api. It returns distance in miles, pressure in inches, temperature in Fahrenheit.

The actual figure it just gave for pressure is 948.0 inches hHg which is ridiculous, it should be 30.2 inches Hg.

Something wrong with the yahoo feed system I think.

Well though the applet is displaying, the data seems wrong for wind as well as pressure. There is no wind in my area at present nor has there been any all morning, yet the applet shows 11kph wind.

stephem, thank you, applet with those changes is now working with new Yahoo API. However the link (http://woeid.rosselliot.co.nz/) to get the WOEID no longer works - the site has a message "WOEID Lookup is being redeveloped to modern web standards. The new site will present the same data in a more user-friendly manner."

I found this site: http://zourbuth.com/tools/woeid/ where you can type in your town and it gives the correct WOEID (at least for me in Canberra)

Danj, yes the pressure figure is totally wrong. That probably needs some recoding I guess. But I really only use temperature and forecast myself so I'm not troubled.

Hopefully mockturtl might rebuild the applet sometime ...

To get the applet to work with the new Yahoo API:
1. You need to make changes to applet.js and settings-schema.json as detailed at https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/pull/143/files with the discussion at https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/pull/143

2.Or download the updated applet.js and settings-schema.json files from https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/tree/38896987eed0046eb1e80ce55868cb41ef2160d5

Files go in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl

3. Remove applet from panel then add again, use the new WOEID given when you press the button, and the applet will start working.

hey foole, try refreshing the list before downloading it. that worked for me.
apparently yahoo changed their API or something, that's why it's stuck on monday. someone here https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/pull/143 found a solution, and it works: i get the right day and the right temperature/weather. problem is the conversion factors got messed up in process, i get wrong windspeed values and impossible pressure values (it's as if they get converted even when they shouldn't). don't know if it's just me or that needs a little tweaking as well

My test are with this code (SPXX0039)

Hello, I have a doubt.

I use 1.11.15 version and works well, but I do not know when I can configured the applet to reload weather data.

For example when I turn on the machine the applet connects, loads my location data, and says me that in this moment the temperature is 5C, but 2 hours later the temperature is 10C but the applet does not reload the news data.

Do you know the time to reload weather data that use the applet?

Regards.

This is a great applet, really well-presented with concise information in a logical layout. My only issue is that it appears to use Yahoo Weather as the source of the information, and Yahoo Weather isn't very good. I live in a metro area of approx one million inhabitants, and the applet frequently presents the weather for my city (Glasgow, Scotland) as "unknown." I've checked, and Yahoo Weather also presents the information as unknown on its own website at the same time.

It would be great if the applet included an option to specify the source of the weather info from a list of possibilities, including e.g Accuweather, BBC weather etc.

Thanks!

I have a problem: Ireland only works up to EIXX 0103 - EIXX0104 and everything above that fails, ie doesn't load. We go up to EIXX8597, see https://weather.codes/ireland/ so this creates problems if you are not in the major centres. I am having a feeling that similar might be true for other countries, judging by the comments I see here.

Any hope of getting all codes to work?

Thanks!

I also think that "refresh now" option would be helpful. If I suspend the computer, the status of the applet is not automatically refreshed at wake and I have to wait for the update interval.

Hello, mockturtl.

I'd like to report a bug. Every day, when I turn on my computer in the morning, I still get a "moon" icon for the applet. Please, take a look at the screenshot below.

http://postimg.org/image/laidvjrh5/

As you can see, it's 07:35 AM and the icon still shows a "moon". The temperature is correct, but according to the Yahoo weather website, it is now "mostly sunny", therefore that "moon" icon is certainly wrong. Well, I'm not an expert, so please don't get me wrong, but I think this might have something to do with the refresh interval. It seems that when the applet is loaded, it does not refresh the icon, then it loads the last icon used (in my case, the moon, because I turned off my computer last night). Then, if I wait for the first refresh (I've set it to 15 minutes) after turning the computer on, the icon changes (sun, for instance) and everything gets back to normal. Like I said, I'm not an expert, so maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway, I'd like to suggest one thing, if you don't mind. Maybe you could consider adding a "refresh button" somewhere so we can do it manually at any time we want to. I think that'd be cool.

Thanks for your attention and thanks for maintaining the applet. This is a must have. Cheers. :)

1. I would like to have the Baufort scale as an option for the messurement of windspeed.

2. I 'd like to have some more option, about what is shown in the Panel. For me, that is mostly wind and airpressure, but perhaps some would also like to be shown other data.

This is a very nice applet! I have 2 bugs however.

2) I copied 11 gnome 22 icons to replace mint-x ones (and 2 sym links) as suggested below, but I still have a grey or black icon in the tray.

This is excellent. One thing that could improve it is updating the weather when you left click (open) the app. This would solve the problem of it waiting for the update interval when the system starts with an Internet connection that takes a few seconds to connect.
-

I forgot to wrote that after changing the icons you have to restart Cinnamon in the standard way i.e. by pressing Alt+F2 and then typing command "r" and pressing Enter.
Before replacing icons you can backup /usr/share/icons/Mint-X/status/22/ folder, just in case.
-
2 years ago
If sobebody has the problem with a notification area icon being black and unreadable then it can be fixed by replacing weather icons in Mint-X theme with icons from Gnome theme by executing the following commands:
cd /usr/share/icons/Mint-X/status/22/
sudo find /usr/share/icons/gnome/22x22/status/ -regex ".*/weather-[a-z\-]*.png" -exec cp {} . \;
sudo ln -sf weather-few-clouds.png weather-clouds.png
sudo ln -sf weather-few-clouds-night.png weather-clouds-night.png
Two icons are not available in Gnome theme so we have to create shortcuts to appropriate existing icons.

Found the problem and fixed it. It was quite bizarre.

I also had a directory "cinnamon-weather-1.7.3" installed in the ".local/share/cinnamon/applets" directory and apparently this was interfering with the one in "weather@mockturtl". Remove it and everythin works OK.

Hi,

So, I love your app, but I've noticed an odd bug. I'm running Linux Mint 15 with Cinnamon 2.0. For the most part, the weather app works fine- however, I've noticed that, occasionally, it will "get stuck" on one forecast, and not update it. For example, displaying weather conditions from earlier in the day, or the previous day. I've discovered that I go into Settings, it will sometimes update to current weather conditions.

Any idea what might be causing this glitch?

Thanks!
-

hi mockturl, just a quick note to let you know. In Cinnamon 2.0, if your applet is using the settings API, an item is automatically added to its context menu by Cinnamon called "configure". This means you can remove the item "Settings".

@JosephM, I think there is a glitch in the applet settings code (in cinnamon, not this applet), because it created a new instance of the applet when I updated - it still left all of the old settings which were not tied to anything on the panel, while the one on the panel had the default settings. I got it to work by setting the WOEID for "Instance 2". You may, however, want to uninstall and reinstall from scratch, as this seems to fix the issue with the dead instance (don't forget to reenter the WOEID if you do).

@glen, the install.sh file is no longer needed as it's primary purpose was to set up the settings (I believe). Since it was switched over to the new settings API, all you need to do is unpack the zip file in ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/ (or /usr/share/cinnamon/applets if you want it available to all users). It should work out of the box.

@Jase - from a terminal window, type (without the quotation marks) "chmod +x ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl/cinnamon-weather-settings", like I suggested earlier.

Okay, I've opened an issue over at Mockturtl's github, and included a unified diff with my corrections. The other correction simply fixes a minor typo. It's over here: https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/issues/36

Darn, that '&' should have been a percent sign, then the numbers 26, then the "d=5_" bit, not just the ampersand. If you type the ampersand, it WONT'T WORK. I'll have to find a way to send Mockturtl a unified diff, or something.

Okay, I have made a simple correction to applet.js, look in "get_weather_url: function()", and change:
return QUERY_URL + this._woeid + '_' + this.unit_to_url() + '.xml"' ;
to
return QUERY_URL + this._woeid + '&d=5_' + this.unit_to_url() + '.xml"' ;

It should be on line # 830, and is the only change I had to make to get this to work.

@Mintkatze: I finally got a few minutes to look over the code, to determine where the forecast was coming from, and it's not exactly the fault of mockturtl's applet - the forecast is coming via Yahoo, and it's only giving the applet the 2-day forecast, rather than the 5-day. We're not the only ones having this issue, http://developer.yahoo.com/forum/General-Discussion-at-YDN/Yahoo-Weather-5-day-Forecast/1228762478000-84d25277-b9c6-35c0-8c54-c487a5093090

I'm working on a fix, now that I've found the solution. Just need to change the format of the .xml url, so it specifically requests the number of days. I'll post a fix later today or tomorrow. I'm sure Mockturtl already has it, and is just making sure everything else is ready for an update for cinnamon 1.8.

Where does it get the weather from? The page does not list my location (Ioannina) while weather.com has it as GRXX0254 (http://www.weather.com/weather/today/Ioannina+GRXX0254:1:GR).
Also as stated by sdim installing from control panel in cinnamon 1.8 does not work properly.

@Mintkatze:
I followed the instructions, my friend, and I'll let you know if it's fixed.
Nevertheless, I installed thw applet via the new interface of Olivia, i.e. automatically, without downloading it first from here.
Shouldn' t it have worked? Or maybe it's not ready to be installed like this yet?

@ mockturtl, A possible fix for the settings install porblem is this. In the "install.sh" file, at line 32(?), after your "mkdir -p ${INSTALL_DIR}" line, add the line "chmod +x ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl/cinnamon-weather-settings" . I tried it and ,except for restarting cinnamon, it seemed to automate the entire install. Hope this helps.

@ Eradan,

first let my say thank you for your quick fix for the cinnamon-wheather-applet settings. This window now opens again.

But: what remains is, that the five-day forecast still does not work as expected. Only the two days are correctly shown. Could you please find out for us, how to fix this up??

Thanks again for your help Eradan,

Greetings

hi sdim,

then you did the installation not correctly,

Step one: download the package from here

Step two: extract that file to here: ./local/share/cinnamon/applets

Step three: right-click on the file where it says "install.sh". Then a window with some options pops up.
There select "execute in Terminal" and type in your password. Wait until this is finised

Step four: Then type this into your Terminal as Eradan told:

chmod +x ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl/cinnamon-weather-settings

This fixes the error-message with the authorization-problem.

Step five: close your Terminal and return to the panel. Click on the wheater-applet. There in the menue go to the right top corner.

Step six: press these gear-icons and the settings will appear.

Setp seven: find out your WOEID here: http://edg3.co.uk/snippets/weather-location-codes/

Step eight: type this WOEID into the first white box you see in the cinnamon-wheather-settings.
Into the second white box, you type in the name of your city and close the settings

eh voilá, your applet should run as expected. But: there still a bug with the five-day-forecast. This still does not work as expected. This still needs to be fixed.

Greetings

@palimmo: it's trying to run a python script that hasn't been marked as an executable. A quick fix would be to open a terminal session, and type (without the quotes, of course) "chmod +x ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/weather@mockturtl/cinnamon-weather-settings", that will add the executable attribute, and you'll be able to hit the configuration window. There are a few other scripts in that same directory, with the .sh extension, that need the executable attribute added, too.

Also, @branimator & Mintkatze: I also have been experiencing the same problem with the 5-day forecast feature. I'm running Mint 13 x64, and Cinnamon 1.8.6.

hi branimator,

I can confirm this bug (it's the same for me) and after updating via Cinnamon-settings I got a further error saying this:

childprocess of Cinnamon-wheater-applet could not be processed (no authorization).

Please correct that or tell us, how we can correct this.

Thank you,

hi palimmo,

reffering to your question: did you read the ReadMe-file inside the package?? You need to install some dependencies:

gettext

libglib2.0-bin

Then download the wheater-applet from here and put this file into this directory: /.local/share/cinnamon/appets

Upnpack this package here by right-clicking on the package and select "unpack here".

Then close these folders and return to your desktop.

There press Alt+F2 and type r into the prompt to relaod your Cinnamon-shell

Then the wheater-applet should show up in your panel.

Afterwards klick onto the applet and select this gear-icon in the right-upper corner.

This opens a menue, where you have to set the WOEID of your location and in the second white box, you write the name of your city. THe WOEID of your location, you can get here: http://edg3.co.uk/snippets/weather-location-codes/

Copy the WOEID of your location in the first white box and in the second you write the name of your town and close this menue and your wheather-applet should work for you.

hi mockturtl,

today I wanted to install your nice applet via the new ciianom-menue of Cinnamon 1.8. But there, this error showed up:

An error occurred during installation or updating. You may wish to report this incident to the developer of weather@mockturtl.

If this was an update, the previous installation is unchanged

Details: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 12: ordinal not in range(128)


So my question would be: might it be possible, that this applet needs to be updated?? I don't konw, so that's why I ask.

I've installed it in Linux Mint 15 64bit through the new interface.

Two facts:
- i can't set my location clicking the gear -> notification: "Failed toexectuted child process "cinnamon-weather-settings (No such file or directory)"
- the weather icon isn't coloured. It is black and pretty difficult to see.

There seems to be a bug at line 192 with "return Gettext.dgettext(UUID, str); ", making the applet hang at refreshing.

Changing it to .gettext works, but most of the info is replaced with "weather@mokturtl"

hi mintie,

there is a much easier way, how to solve up this problem. I found the working way how to do it.

1. download this .zip-package and save it in a directory. Then go to this directory and do richt-click on that .zip-package.
2. select " extract here".
3. then open the extracted folder. There you will find the install.sh.
4. double left-click on this file install.sh and select "run in Terminal" and enter your userpassword.
5. Then the Terminal dissappeares and you go to the next file called cinnamon-weather-settings. (if this step does not work, then repeat with double left-click on it and select "run in Terminal".
6. double left-click this file and enter your WOEID.

important information: The correct WOEID of your hometown, you will find here: http://edg3.co.uk/snippets/weather-location-codes/germany/
To change your country, scroll down until the end of the page and in this green area, select your country.

Then close this folder and restart your system.

Then after restart, go to Cinnamon-settings and select the wheater-applet and then click this gear-icon and select "ahow conditions in panel". Choose if you want Farenheit and so on. Then this applet will automaticly show the correct data.

Greetings

I tried to install the applet and lost my complete desktop environment temporarily. I went to the downloaded folder cinnamon-weather-1.7.3 and ran ./install.sh. During the ensuing process, I was asked to type in my super-user password, which I unfortunately did. Nonetheless, I got an error message after that, telling me that a certain file could not be accessed (I can't recall that file's name now). At this point I became suspicious. So I waited until the install script stopped and then ran ./uninstall.sh to at least clean up (and give up on this applet for now). Then I restarted cinnamon ("Alt+F2" and entered 'r') to clean up to the end.

=> my panels and window menu items all disappeared and I was left with my desktop background image and my windows, which I could not handle anymore. I then restarted the system. After typing my credentials into the login prompt, I immediately received a message, which said something like "your gnome session lasted less than 10 seconds, something went really wrong". In the .xsession file, there was a message "gnome-session[<some number>] no gsettings schemas are installed ...". So I went to that folder in another TTY and saw that the last modified file was /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/gschemas.compiled and that it had only access for root, no read/write/execute access for anyone else. I changed that by 'sudo chmod go+r gschemas.compiled'. And that saved my day. But boy, I had been scared.

=> some rights are not managed correctly. Maybe no one ever uninstalled the applet so no one had this problem so far...

I am running Linux Mint 13 with Cinnamon without backports.

There seems to be a lack of space in the panel with the text or just temp. Edited line 494 and 496 of applet.js to fix this.

Changed line 494 from:

to:
this.set_applet_label(' ' + comment + ' ' + temperature + ' ' + this.unit_to_unicode());

Hello mockturtl!
Congrats for the app. It really rocks,... except that it is based on a NONAME weather station. Would it be possible to implement AccuWeather.com as data provider?
One of the biggest downsides of GNOME based application is their being bound to Weather.com and similar relicts. The closest weather station offered to me is 70km, so it isn't very useful while the KDE apps like Yawp gives you option to choose nearly any location on earth.
I would like to see something out of this applet too if possible. Thank you!

Using LinuxMint 14 AMD64 Cinnamon, after updating I located this applet from the 'add applets to the panel,' downloaded and extracted it, then ran the install.sh from a terminal. After restarting, I was able to add weather to the panel and entered my U.S. zipcode as a location. Everything worked, and continues to work after restarting my session to make certain.

In my opinion, an applet like this is essential for a desktop, I'm glad it was easy to find and use, but it should be included by default, in the 'add applets to the panel' menu.

I had the same problems with Cinnamon 1.6: Circular arrow with three dots. I don't know why, but during installation the app information doesn't copy to dconf. The solution was simple enough. To fix:

As root, copy "org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl.gschema.xml" to "/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas", then restart cinnamon.
Thats it.

After, fixing it there was one more problem. I can't change the settings from the app. They can be changed with no problem using dconf editor.

With "Temperature Unit" set to "celsius", "Pressure" field always show one of these two vaules: 982.05 mb. or 1015.92 mb.

For chrnoble and the guy looking to change off Innsbruck. Once you have compiled the schema, navigate back to weather@mockturtl (./local/share/cinnamon/applets) and click on the cinnamon weather settings icon. This opens the settings, and works fine, including fahrenheit.

A couple of things that aren't on the README, but maybe should be: Move the org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl.gschema.xml file to /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/. Then, in terminal, run sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas
Also, something on the README about setting the applet in the terminal may help, as trying to do it by clicking the upper right corner gets "Execution of Cinnamon-Weather-Settings failed Command not found". I would very much like to change this thing to fahrenheit.

I've downloaded Weather 1.5.1 and installed it in Cinnamon 1.4 on Mint 13. I'm using an Acer Aspire One (Linux) with 8GB SSD and 1.5 GB RAM. I installed the applet to the ./local directory by running the install.sh from the Nautilus GUI, since my command line did not recognize the script as executalbe. When that worked poorly, I ran uninstall.sh and cleanup.sh from Nautilus, again because bash didn't recognize the scripts. When I did finally get weather@mockturtl in the applets directory and installed it from Cinnamon Settings I got a Redo icon and ... The Applets subset of Settings does not give me a configurator for the applet, and running the configurator inside weather@mockturtl gives me a quick blank square that immediately disappears. The weather exrtension worked fine in Mint 12/GNOME. I switched because I found the new GNOME too noisy.

What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

Thx a lot...

Albertaman I finally installed it properly. I had to compile schema manually and I missed the program "gettext". This is what I did:
1. Install gettext
1. Run Install.sh
2. Copy "org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl.gschema.xml" to "/usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/" (You will need to open nautilus as root)
3. On a terminal: glib-compile-schemas --dry-run /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/ && sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/
4. Restart cinnamon
Now it works perfect.

I downloaded this extension and it worked right away with the latest Cinnamon 1.4 in Ubuntu following the ./install script and even changed the Innsbruck to my home town Tromsø without problems.

I have the same problem as Albertaman on a clean install of LM13. If I try to set location manually I get this error message "No such schema 'org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl'". mockturtl any ideas to solve this? Thanks

I'm having a problem with this applet. It appears to be installed alright, but in the tray the only thing that appears is a circular arrow with three dots beside it. When I click on it, a small empty balloon appears... That's it.... Can anyone help?

For those having the "msgfmt: not found" error while running the install script, it can be solved by installing the "gettext" package and then running the install script.

Thanks for the applet.
Typed in my zip and was good to go.
Is it possible you could add a couple more days or at lease one?
Or tell me how to add?

RE my comment above, I've now got this working in Fedora 16_x64. Had to run the "uninstall" script first and then the "cleanup" script. Thanks for a great applet! :)

Like Mitsushi in one of the posts above, I can't get this applet to work with Cinnamon on Fedora 16 (64bit)... worked just fine on Mint though. Anyone got any ideas?

Great, updated the link in /usr/local/bin and it worked :)

Now, my only suggestion (that I don't know if it's possible to implement) is that the weather information pop-up should appear on mouse over (no need to click to open), and then it would close on mouse out.

Hi, first, thanks for the nice applet :)

I don't really like to install applets, especially in the home dir, should be just unpack to /usr/share/cinnamon/applets/ directory. So, that's what I did :) After installing, I just moved the stuff from my home directory. The applet works, but if trying to configure it I get "Execution of 'cinnamon-weather-settings' failed". I can execute it manually from the /usr/share/... directory, but it would be nicer if it worked from the applet UI :)

I got the applet working on another machine, just have to retrace my steps and try on the first machine I was having problems with in my post above.

Question: I was playing with the window and gtk themes, and now the weather applet's pop-up has tiny text. This brings to mind (not strictly for this applet, but for Mint 12 in general) that there are no "reset to default" toggles on any of the desktop theming. I have no idea where to start in restoring the weather applet pop-up to its default look (per the screenshot at the top of this page).

I'll take this up on the Mint forums...

Oh sorry for that question. Now everything works fine, I just run "install.sh".
The weather is fine :)

Same as newkansan.
Trying to run your applets but it outputs an error into log:
cinnamon_weather::_init: Schema "org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl" not found.
Running at LMDE, updated it to UP4 and installed cinnamon. Then added applets from this place. How can it be solved?
-

Ran install script, logged out and back in, added Weather applet, saw the applet in the panel with no location set.
When I type 'gsettings set org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl woeid USNY0996' in the terminal I get:
No such schema 'org.cinnamon.applets.weather@mockturtl'
Googled for a solution and could not find one that worked for me. I'm running a fresh install of Mint 12 and Cinnamon. Any ideas?

Hi, pretty good applet and I liked it. I would like to see the weather of two or more locations.

Sweet to be able to enter the zip code and get the exact right weather! Just wish the install of applets was a one-click thing.

mockturtl... I feel like an idiot. I didn't have symbolic icons turned on! Working perfectly now.

This was cool in Shell (kudos to the original dev.), it was great to see it ported to Cinnamon (can't remember who did it initially as an extension), and it's just brilliant now as an applet! Congrats to everyone involved.

Sidhartha, I'm not sure what might cause the problem. I don't think it's the applet -- I just installed Mint-Xtra, and I can't reproduce. From the forums: http://img190.imageshack.us/img190/7151/screenshotat20120309121.png

mockturl... did you ever work out this icon issue that bimsebasse pointed out? The previous suggestion you made didn't seem to work for me.

Bim, try this: run the INSTALL script for Faenza again, choose "Y" for the last question ("Do you want to replace some 22x22 applications icons by their monochrome counterpart to be displayed in system tray ?").

That fixed it for me.

This indicates it's a problem with Faenza. I don't know how themes work, so if there's a change I should make in the applet, I'll be happy to do so.

I did not use your latest version which is really perfect, even for French !! Apologies for my above messages and congratulations.

Five stars for sure.

With the most popular icon theme for Linux (Faenza) and dark panel a lot of the weather icons become illegible, I basically can't use this until support for symbolic icons (like the Gnome Shell extensions has) is added back in. Whereas normal icons have fixed colouring, symbolic icons follow theme set colours, in this case the panel's colour scheme. It's very handy for panel icons and Cinnamon's basic system applets (power, network, volume) also use symbolic icons for the same reason.

Sorry

Very nice and working very well. Thanks.

The French text takes a little more place than the English one and, for this reason, I think the containing box should probably be made a little bigger.

@mockturtl : Your link does not work for finding the city. It only shows perhaps some USA cities.
Kindly replace the link with what @butterfly given. That link works perfectly.

OK, I give up...
How does one change the weather station from Innsbruck?
I wandered the source code and found "woeid" but no info on how to set it.......
