simple weather forecast

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  19441
Submitted:  Oct 30 2008
Updated:  Dec 26 2009


Updated Dec 2009

Background defaults to the kde4 desktop theme settings. See screenshot.

Renamed the plasmoid from weatherforecast to simpleweatherforecast as there is a default (beautiful) weather plasmoid in 4.2

Old description:
One more weather plasmoid
(I have a used lot of code from weatherplasmoid)

If you have any error first install all the "Depends packages" (Red dot) shown at:

If you have *ubuntu then issue:
sudo apt-get build-dep kdeplasma-addons

If you have other distributions please look for packages with similar names.

I have tested it in Intrepid and Hardy

See install file
tar jxvf plasma-simpleweatherforecast-???.tar.bz2
cd plasma-weatherforecast-0.???
mkdir build
cd build
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde4-config --prefix` --debug-output ..
sudo make install

The plasmoid installs 3 files only; just delete them.

(my prefix is
$> kde4-config --prefix or kde-config --prefix
). Look for your prefix and then delete these files

If you update the plasmoid please log out of KDE and then login. Otherwise you will get the _old_ version only.

kquitapp plasma
nohup plasma &

Debian packages:
http://unixcod.org/debian/binary from

Please put your city CODE if there are any problems so that I try here.

Please start using the plasmoid:http://websvn.kde.org/trunk/KDE/kdeplasma-addons/applets/weather/


Background defaults to the kde4 desktop theme settings. See screenshot.

Minor fixes in install file and added attribution

Show "Network not reachable".
The font colour is theme dependent. So, text will automatically update.

v 1.0
Font dialog: thanks to Joe Istead
Renamed to prevent problems.


Removed proxy support. Too many problems due to that.

Changed the file names and added KDE 4.2 support.Thanks linleno

Fixed proxy support (by Yannig).
- connect a signal from the job downloader to a slot of the plasmoid
- parse directly binary content

added proxy support. But unfortunately it does not refresh properly. So, please look into the code and help me (To Yannig).

Improved alignment. Thanks to patkoscsaba.
Substitute "+" from patkoscsaba by a " " (blank space).

fixed the filename. sorry for the inconvenience.

Rename weather.svg to plasma-weatherforecast.svg
See: http://revu.ubuntuwire.com/details.py?package=plasmoid-weatherforecast

Removed country/region name
changed yweather:wind to yweather:condition for accurate temperature

-Initial Release
-It is completely inspired by Weather Plasmoid

 Yahoo! Weather icon set

I made an icon set for this plasmoid from the beautiful weather images used on Yahoo! Weather. These look much more realistic than any other weather icon set I've seen. Enjoy!

I updated this set to add some day/night indications to a few of the icons, following the example of the small icon set on Yahoo! Weather.

12: shower -> rain
37: storm -> storm-day
38: storm -> storm-day
39: storm -> shower-day
40: shower -> rain
45: shower -> shower-night
47: shower -> storm-night

Download location is the same.

thanks for it. Did you check if Yahoo! terms and conditions allow using of their images for free ? I do not want to post any files that are not legal.

The images are also embedded in the Yahoo! Weather Konfabulator Widget, but I have no idea about the legality of using them outside of the purpose for which they are distributed. I'd suggest against your officially endorsing this icon set. If Yahoo! has a problem with my redistributing their icons (which incidentally anyone can obtain for free via HTTP from their web servers), I'll take down my copy.

Perhaps it would be less odious to distribute a script that fetches the images from the Yahoo! web server and builds the SVG. Then it would be up to each end user as to whether they want to use the Yahoo! images in the Simple Weather Forecast plasmoid.

 Patch: reenabled proxy support

Hi and thank you for this nice weather plasmoid :)
Because I have to use a proxy to connect to the internet version 1.2 of the plasmoid would not work for me at first. However, I took a look at the source code, reenabled the proxy support together with one small change to it and the plasmoid did work again (through my proxy and at least for me).

I have attached a copy of the diff at the end of this comment, but you can also just download the file from my Mediafire acount: http://www.mediafire.com/?xugymvdoyew

In "README" file and "install" script, there is "-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde-config --prefix`" instead of "-DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=`kde**4**-config --prefix`".

My first installation failed because of that :/

After upgrading this week and changing form using ifup to knetworkmanager for network control the simple weather plasmoid doesn't display the weather (just a circle of balls) when kde starts. If I click on the plasmoid's settings and then ok the weather will show.

I'm thinking the problem is due from where in the boot process my dsl connection is made (during boot vrs load of kde) but the plasmoid should still find the connection even if it's not there when it first loads.

The weather lcd plasmoid functions fin

I think it will be a bit difficult to fix this - as I am not a professional coder (I will try).
Anyways you can set the time interval for refreshing to 2 min or so. then it will refresh (I hope).

seems extreme to set interval to 2 minutes but if I may make a suggestion (or 2) consider posting on the the development sub-forum on the kde forums http://forum.kde.org/viewforum.php?f=108 or contact a developer whose plasmoid works correctly like that of the lcd weather station plasmoid.

But thanks, this is my favorite weather plasmoid

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
