Is there any weather app that works with Ubuntu 12.04?
I tried many of them including the screenlets.
Nothing seems to work.
Here are some variants you may like:
First Way: city lens
to install type this in terminal(to start Ctrl+Alt+T)
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:scopes-packagers/ppa sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install unity-lens-utilities unity-scope-cities
Second Way: weather indicator
to install weather applet indicator write in terminal(to start Ctrl+Alt+T)
Third Way: My Weather Indicator
to install my weather indicator type in terminal(to start Ctrl+Alt+T):
Fourth Way: Stormcloud
Paid Application ($2.99), available at developers' website
For gnome shell users
Here we have one amazing extension for gnome shell called Weather or something like that. Here is screenshot:
So to install this just move on here and click that switch-i like thing on the right to turn it on, and it will ask you do you want to install it. Just say yes. Add your cities and you have another awesome weather app for gnome!
Alternative Way: HTC-style Weather Clock
for this just read from here
gnome-weather works fine under LXDE (Lubuntu); I installed it in the Application Launch Bar. sudo apt-get install gnome-weather.
I have installed, and it works excellently.
There's a fork of StormCloud for those who don't want to pay.
Typhoon is a free and open source weather application. It is based on Stormcloud 1.1 ,however without the bells and whistles. It is and always will be free. We have not included features like multiple locations due to no one can live in more than one places in a specific time(except electrons!). If you want to check the weather of any other location, you have to change the location. Also, we have not included 'chameleonic background' as it would make the app resource hungry. It is now a couple of mbs but 'chameleonic background' would make it around 300 mb.
To install Typhoon, start terminal by Ctrl+Alt+T, then run following commands one by one:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apandada1/typhoon sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install typhoon
