Weather ticker in Gkrellm?

I have Mandrake 9.1 and plus I have Gkrellm running on my KDE desktop. But in the link below if you notice in the Gkrellm, it shows the temperatrure in Celcius and the humidity.

How could I add the weather thing in the Gkrellm like they have in the pic. Although, this is an OpenBSD desktop (not Linux) pic.

Thats the plugin, just download it, compile, make userinstall and then restart gkrellm2. You can set it for Farhenheit if you want. Great plugin to see the temp before you go outside

I extracted the file from Gkrellm weather 2.0. And then from there could you explain on what to do from there? What do mean to compile? From what file?

unixfreak -- a quick search on your previous ~400 posts here reveals that you have had extensive exposure to Linux using multiple distros, and therefore I'm skeptical that the topic of software installation is an unfamiliar one to you.

However, if installing software truly is unknown to you then reading this page will provide you with a useful overview. As you will see, all that you need to do to install a package is to untar it, then cd to the new directory that gets created, run ./configure, make, and make install.

There are many other helpful online resources that discuss software installation under Linux; all you need to do is spend some time reading them. -- J.W.
