Plasma 5 Weather by odd-k 28 comments

Dude! I've been waiting soo long for a nice weather app for kde5. PLEASE finish making this the prettiest and most comprehensive weather widget kde has ever seen (I know you can do it). Those dudes who want weather in their docks are all virgins. I'm old. I'm set in my ways. I want a REAL desktop with a pretty, comprehensive, and configurable weather app that's always there, reminding me I'm still alive and there's actually a world out there - with weather!
Honestly, I haven't tried your app. yet - but I like what I'm seeing so far. If you haven't done it yet, please allow for a completely invisible background (or none at all). That's a deal breaker for me. Thanks again for a really interesting weather app. I'm installing it now. Best of luck. - Feb 24 2021

Just wanted to say thanks. I've been using CWP for years, and I find myself missing its constant presence. Seems these desktop plasmoids just aren't in style now - even my standby YAWP isn't available for kde5.
Anyway, that's neither here, nor there, I wanted to say thank you for creating and maintaining such a really nice weather display for my desktop, for such a long time.
I'm off to struggle with conky now... - Mar 26 2017

Ah...sounds like appropriate work for being snowed-in and unable to get out! Well, it's a good technique, and I'll remember it - and who knows, maybe I'll bite the bullet and actually try it with my favorite set out of the bunch - if it's not as bad as it sounds I may even do them all...

I'll definitely look for that yawp set. Thanks for the tips! - Dec 28 2011

Oh, also...

I don't know if this matters to you (or anyone else, for that matter), but in your dependency request for ubuntu (kubuntu) above:

Quote:sudo apt-get install build-essential cmake kdelibs5-dev kdebase-workspace-dev libxrender-dev libx11-dev git

Git was not available in apt. I had to go into synaptic and search, where I found kgit, instead. - Dec 18 2011

I ran the script and everything went well until this. It seems like a simple configuration error, but I don't know what to do...Help?

I'm running kubuntu lucid with kde 4.5.3 backport. - Dec 18 2011

"Scale Font" under Layout 1 doesn't work? You could always try changing the font... - Dec 16 2011

(Just so ya' know...liquid weather is no longer updated, and the icon sets are available for anyone who wants to use them.) - Dec 15 2011

Hey!

Thanks for a great weather app!

I was wondering...I got a bunch of liquid weather icon sets in png format, and I wanted to use them in cwp, but found I could not. Is there any way other than conversion that I can use them? - Dec 15 2011

You can adjust most of the text attributes yourself in the kde control panel, but you'll have to experiment a bit to figure out which settings apply to what text. I think you'll find it either under the desktop or appearance settings.
