Question Plasma PyWeather Widget needs dep. Which one?

So I tried to use the LCD Weather App for KDE but failed. So I decided to try out the PyWeather widget instead. That one doesn't work probably due to a dependency that is missing for python. Any solutions?

PyWeather : $ git clone

Would it be this "dependency" : `ImportError: No module named serial`

Python-serial > pyserial

You need the PyKDE extensions for that component to work properly. There should be (a set of) packages offered by your OS for this.

For KDE on Slackware, you could try cwp or yawp.

Forecasting is a difficult art, especially when it concerns the future (anonymous).
