Where are you ?

Go here:
https://weather.yahoo.com/
enter your town in the search box and hit enter

the URL will change to something like:
https://weather.yahoo.com/united-kingdom/england/nanpean-29655/
you want that 29655 number

Open your .conkyrc file, and find the section:-
Code: [Select]
#---------WEATHER----------#
\
\
# WOEID(Where On Earth ID) #
\
${execi 300 curl -s "http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?w=44418&u=c" -o ~/.cache/weather.xml}\
and change that 44418 for the number you got earlier .. and SAVE the change.

and either restart conky .. or log off/on .. or reboot.
