Conky Weather for Canada


I live in Canada and I recently added a weather script to my conky. It is set up using weather.com (which is form the U.S.). I do like how it looks. Unfortunately, half of the information (like UV Index, Barometric pressure) is not present. I usually go to another website, weathernetwork.com, for the weather. So, I was wondering if there is a way for my conky to gather it's information from a different website. If so, how do I do such a thing?

Thank you in advance!

Well, there might be a way, but you need to post what that part of the script says. Or a link to the script.

Weather Scripts

That would be an important thing to post. I retrieved the script from http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=869328. The files can be found just over half way down the page.

I see how they are doing it now, they are using an XML data feed provided by weather.com. I'm pretty sure weather.com shows international weather as well, so all you have to do is configure it to look for a Canadian city, I think. If that doesn't work you can also use weathernetwork.com via rss:

http://howto.wikia.com/wiki/Howto_ad...y/conky-rss.sh

just point it to the rss feed from that site, it seems there is one.
