Cinnamon weather applet


I am running Ubuntu 12.04 with the Cinnamon DE. I have had the weather applet installed since shortly after I put cinnamon on. A couple of weeks ago it stopped working. It now sits in the panel and says "please wait, loading", but never actually loads. I have tried it with various WOEID's and zip codes, but nothing changes.

I did have an earlier version on, but when it stopped working, uninstalled it with ./uninstall.sh, then tried installing 1.7.1, but it does the same thing. I tried the ./cleanup script as well.

I have installed, uninstalled, rebooted, restarted cinnamon to no avail. I have tried both as my user, and as root, no go. I even read the install script and went and removed everything it would have installed, then tried to reinstall again, still won't work!
, just gives me "loading".

Anyone have any suggestions?

There is a bug report about this on Launchpad: https://bugs.launchpad.net/weather-i...or/+bug/964365
There it says to install the weather app from precise-proposed. To do this, enable the proposed repository in Synaptic, then reload your software sources and install the newer version of the weather app.

Also see post #6 in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1967522

I am not sure if this is the same weather app that is used on the Cinnamon DE or not. I would assume that the bug reported on Launchpad was for the Unity desktop. Using the weather app from precise-proposed should not cause any harm though.

I appreciate your trying to assist me, but that thread is about a weather app for the unity desktop. I would like to have the one for Cinnamon working.

Again, thanks for trying to help, your response is appreciated. I will see if I can track down the author of the weather applet for cinnamon, and see what he/she says.

I did try to like unity, going two weeks with nothing but frustration, much gnashing of teeth and talking to god quite a bit.

If I have to find a work around for a weather applet I'll keep on working on the one for my prefered DE.
