did you have any success with my solution? – rosch Nov 13 '12 at 19:32

There are two solutions without having to add new ppa sources:

1. gnome-shell-extensions-weather

Do the following to have the weather in the top panel using gnome-shell-extensions-weather:

sudo apt-get install gnome-tweak-tool
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-weather

Logout and back in.
Open the gnome-tweak-tool (gnome-tweak-tool in a terminal):
go to Shell Extensions and enable the weather indicator extension. It should appear in the top panel next to the time. Click on it for further configuration.

2. indicator-weather

This one will sit in the bottom panel.

sudo apt-get install indicator-weather

There will also be an entry in the startup applications' list. If you want to see it after the installation, run it from a terminal:


You can now go ahead and customize (adding locations, etc).
