Is this another applet that isn't from Gnome? It would really help if you tell us where you get these things.

Are you asking the people who write these things what's happening or are you just coming to LQ and asking thinking that, even though we are quite stunningly brilliant, we have all the answers for every offbeat applet available on the net?

The more information you can give us the better we can help you, unfortunately you are telling us very little about something many of us have not used.

I can use any other better weather applet too...if you recommend!

I didn't say you went to a rare place. I said you are getting offbeat extensions and you are asking for help from people on LQ, and I seem to be the only one even attempting to help, but you aren't asking for help from the people who developed the extensions. You supply very little information so everything we suggest is a guess at best, you don't tell us where you are getting these things, and you seem to expect us to know how to fix the problem.

The more you help us, the more we can help you.

Give me some time and I'll take a look and see what I can figure out.

EDIT: Did you know there are 2 versions? One for Gnome 3 and another for Gnome 3.2? What version of Gnome are you using and what version of the applet are you using?

EDIT: Maybe you should write this information in your signature, like me and many others do, so we don't have to ask you very basic questions.

i try to provide as much information as i can! But, i thought people must be using these common-extensions and that is why i thought they must be familiar with the issues.
I'm very thankful to you for looking into my situation.

I'll take care of providing more information in future.

OK, I have downloaded both the deb for Ubuntu (in the hope it would install) and the source.

The deb installed but I could not get it to even show on my panel. So I removed and purged the deb and attempted to install from source. After installing all the required dependencies I then followed the instructions in the readme file. When I got to "make" I get an error message saying
Code:
root@michael-laptop:/home/michael/Downloads/simon04-gnome-shell-extension-weather-4adcae1# make
Making all in src
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/michael/Downloads/simon04-gnome-shell-extension-weather-4adcae1/src'
Makefile:432: *** missing separator.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/michael/Downloads/simon04-gnome-shell-extension-weather-4adcae1/src'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
To me there are problems with this applet. If I were you, or if I myself were interested, I would be contacting the guy/girl who wrote this thing and I'd be asking them what is the problem.

Good luck with it.

I'm not very good at detecting error.
So, I'd like to share what i did to get it on my panel.

1) i selected gnome3.0 branch from the tree on this page
2) downloaded tar.gz folder and extracted the content to .local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
3) opened the terminal within the folder and ran these three commands one by one...
Code:
./autogen.sh --prefix=/usr
make
sudo make install
4) refreshed gnome shell (Alt+F2+r)
5) configured rest of the applet using dconf-editor

Thanks for sharing. I did the whole setup in gsettings etc when the deb was installed. Shutting down Gnome shell and restarting it did nothing. I couldn't even get the source to install. I'm not all that interested in it myself I only tried in an attempt to help you out. I'll be waiting until Gnome bring back a native applet.

Like I said, a few times now, if I were you I'd be contacting the guy/girl who wrote the applet.

that was indeed very helpful nature of yours, to invest some time in such a crap!
I would have contacted the writer of this extension but i never did it before and i don't know how to do it now, either!

The name and email in bold is the one that belongs to the person who owns the page you put up in the link in post 3. The other names and emails are of other people who are involved with the applet. There is one from someone at Fedora, you're using Fedora, so to me the next logical step is to email these two people.

I'm sorry if I seem rude but there are non so blind as those who do not look.

I asked in post 2 if you had contacted them! I also mentioned in posts 4,7, and 9. In post 10 you tell me you couldn't cause you don't know how. Now you have changed your story.

You can continue this discussion if you want but you just showed me that you are either not reading what is in front of you or you are just not bothering to answer simple questions at all or truthfully, because of this I'm done here. I hope you find your answers sooner rather than later

i'm sorry to say this but you have completely misunderstood me...
none of your posts were aimed to only ask me if i had contacted them! it was always coupled with one or more other questions as well.
So, i tried to restrict myself to provide as much info as i could.
I contacted them already but i never got any reply from any blogger/website owner or any other person who i contacted via a website.So, how could i expect a solution from them now?

I'm trying to appreciate your help from the beginning but you must see my side of issues as well.
