I am unable to get the weather notification that comes with the clock applet to work.
I have it set to Ottawa, Canada. What seems to be the problem.
Canada jokes to the minimum please :)
Please and thank you.
The Canadian location that I have in the Weather tool on my computer includes the province.
When I go to the Choose Location screen and type "Ottawa" I get a suggested entry of "Ottawa, Ontario, Canada". Using the suggested location results in the weather icon beside the placename, but if I enter "Ottawa, Canada" no weather information is displayed.
Try adding a new location and make sure to select the name suggestion that should appear when you type "Ottawa". I have found some quirks with the weather locations on the clock menu, at least on my system. (I have explained them below.)
On my Ubuntu system, in order to get the weather icon I had to actually select the suggested location name rather than typing the full name.
If Ubuntu has not recognized the location the full "text of the "Location Name" field (e.g. "Ottawa, Ontario, Canada") will be displayed. If the location has been recognized the display will shorten that to just "Ottawa". The weather icon only seems to appear when Ubuntu recognizes the name.
Here is what I did:
At this point the Locations list displayed "Ottawa, Ontario, Canada" without weather.
Finally, I edited the location again, and backspaced some letters to get the suggestion popup to reappear. I selected "Ottawa, Ontario, Canada" from the popup and clicked OK again. Now the Locations listed displayed "Ottawa" with a weather icon.
I even tried copying all of the information from a working location entry (including the latitude and longitude) into a new location. The only way I could get the weather icon was by actually selecting the appropriate name from the suggestion popup.
It could be that it's not getting any data from your local whether station, I guess. Have you tried setting it to a different location - just to see if it works at all?
You may want to try setting Ottawa airport code (YOW) as weather station. It usually works for me (LEAS, Asturias, Spain) when any other weather stations are down or don't work. Good luck!
