Title: xfce4-weather-plugin updated.
Post by: PCNetSpec on February 20, 2018, 06:27:23 pm
I noticed if you installed the xfce4-weather-plugin (0.8.9) and added it to the panel you were unable to select your location (search didn't work).

So I've backported the 0.8.10 version from 18.04 to Peppermint 8

If you want to install it, run:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install xfce4-weather-pluginThen right-click on the panel and select:-

Panel > Add New Items

and add the "Weather Update" plugin.

Once on the panel, right-click it and set your "Properties".

Just received the update here. Plugin works well, with one caveat:

There is a font issue with the Peppermix light themes that causes the text to appear too dark. Noticed this in 0.8.9 as well.

Can't you just change the font colour .. in the preferences (as in your pic) .. I can.

Just click that Black box to the right of "Select font" .. then choose your colour.

Yeah I've figured that much out. I just found it somewhat interesting since other partial-dark gtk themes don't have this issue. (numix as an example)
No biggie either way. :)

Quick question on the XFCE Weather Plugin.  I have it installed and I'm wondering if there is a way to "auto click" on it for startup.  So the Weather Report window will open automatically on boot.  It is in the tray just fine...but have it actually open.
Thanks for any suggestions.

I don't think this is possible (some panel plugins have command interfaces, but most don't) .. maybe there is a different desktop weather app someone knows about ?

If you're looking for a customizable, nice looking desktop weather widget try this one.

I use My -Weather-Indicator easily installed using these commands;

               
Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator
