It's a really great and usefull plasmoid!
Thank you for that! There is only one thing that I miss: it would be nice when it would have a kind of a listener implemented, so when there is no connection to the Internet this plasmoid would show a message like "no connection" and right after you got connected to the Internet the plasmoid would update the weather, because of listener.
All in all it's a really cool plasmoid!

PS: Sorry for my English.

Are you planning to add some i18n ?
Pensez-vous internationaliser votre application ?
Haben Sie vor, ihren Software international auszuweiten?

hi I am having trouble installing. I have read around and googled a fair bit, but I am stuck at the make stage. this is what I get when I type 'make'. I suspect its just something I havent installed but cant work it out:

please add to the requirements:


also why dont you use sf.net to host the package. the current download page has so much flash animation and just freezes my computer.

But many thanks for the nice plasmoid.

 I like it!

Great plasmoid, just what I was looking for, although would it be possible to monitor multiple places in only one instance, or at least group together several instances to make it look tidier? Also, when the weather report is something long like "showers in the vicinity" the text doesn't fit unless the plasmoid is made to be pretty big, could the text possibly be made to be multi line or dynamically resize? Just some ideas, I really like it otherwise!

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.
