I just installed the applet using the terminal like this:

sudo apt-get install indicator-weather

After installing it, I didn't see the icon showing.

I thought that after restarting the computer, the icon might show up, but it didn't. Was I supposed to do something after installing the applet? Or did I do something wrong?

Indicator-weather is not automatically launched at first. You must locate it within your Applications in Unity and open it from there. If it still does not load automatically after that, try loading indicator-weather into your Startup Applications.

You need to launch it for the first time. Locate the icon in dash.
