Weather Wallpaper Plugin

Weather Wallpaper Plugin

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  5964
Submitted:  Apr 5 2009
Updated:  Apr 7 2009


A weather-aware wallpaper for KDE's Plasma desktop shell. Once configured, it is aware of the weather at your location, and will change the desktop's wallpaper as the weather changes. It uses the weather dataengine to retrieve the weather.

-Setting a second location will not work unless after you set it, you switch to another wallpaper plugin, hit apply, and switch back again.
-Also, since the NOAA ion doesn't return icon names, this wallpaper plugin will not work with the NOAA weather source. :(

- Add an element of time in determining the wallpaper, so that night pics can come at night, etc. (The weather icon we receive can't provide this for most weathers, just for cloudy and clear nights)
- Show basic weather info/location name on top left of screen. For now just use the weather widget of your choice. ;-)
+ Autodetect metric/imperial measurement systems based on locale, or at least let the user choose between the two
- Allow the user to set a custom wallpaper for weather conditions.

This wallpaper is compatible with both KDE 4.2 and KDE 4.3, though users of KDE 4.3 users will want to get the latest version from kdeartwork/weatherwallpapers

Until then, feel free to enjoy the wallpaper plugin. :)

Installation notes:
This plugin does need the wallpapers from kdebase-workspace and kdeartwork.

To build this plugin, you will need the development headers for kdelibs and kdebase-workspace. (kdelibs5-dev and kdebase-workspace-dev on Kubuntu, dunno about other distros)


- Fix a bug where the weather update time configuration wasn't saved
- Update translations for plasma-wallpaper-weather.desktop from trunk. (Added sv translation)
- Use the Air wallpaper if the weather cannot be retrieved (No internet, etc)

- Initial release.

 Cannot bring up a city

I'm a bit of a beginner with Kubuntu Jaunty and I would LOVE to have this wallpaper for my laptop. Unfortunately I cannot seem to get my town to appear in any of the weather services and I don't know enough about any of these systems to make heads or tails of what you all have been sharing with one another.

Could someone, please explain, from the blank desktop, how I can get one or more of these patches into the right files, especially the ones that don't give me any permissions to make changes.

Many thanks

i really like this plugin, but one thing that would make it even better is if the wallpapers are configurable:
choose a directory with images named like the states "rainy.png" "sunny..."
and add support for time-of-day-specific themes, so at night and state sunny it shows a moon and stars and in the evening a sunset or things...
this would really be great...

Is it possible to use own collections of wallpapers/create own themes for this?

Want Debian Sid with spices? Get sidux at sidux.com - it simply works :)

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
