The weather-indicator package have been removed from Ubuntu 13.04 (it crashed all the time and did not display forecasts).

What is the replacement package?


I've stepped in as maintainer of the Weather Indicator project, and just pushed a new release that fixes the Forecast issue and most (if not all) of the crash bugs.

Try it out: https://launchpad.net/~weather-indicator-team/+archive/ppa


Best is my-weather-indicator for atareo https://launchpad.net/~atareao/+archive/atareao


I've found my-weather-indicator too buggy (displaying only N/A in 4-day forecasts, unable to use Yahoo Weather, etc.), and therefore decided (at least for now) to use ClearWeather instead, although it's not an indicator, but a screenlet, included in the screenlets-pack-all package.

UPDATE: The bugs mentioned above have been fixed as of version 0.6.4 (end May 2013) and therefore there's no more need to use more memory-hungry Screenlets daemon to merely display a couple of weather forecasts on desktop.


Perhaps Cairo Dock will do. It has weather dock and other useful stuff. Small and simple.
