When you search for a city and enable the weather filter the weather is shown in Fahrenheit. How do I change this to Celsius.

  • what city? what is your regional format set to in settings - language support? – fossfreedom Apr 10 '14 at 20:55

Open your terminal (Ctrl + Alt + T) and run the following command to change the temperature unit to Centigrade:

gsettings set org.gnome.GWeather temperature-unit "'centigrade'"

As can be seen in the image below, temperature is now shown in Centigrades:

Temperature in Delhi shown as Centrigrade

Alternatively, you can use dconf Editor Install dconf Editor to change the temperature unit and all the other Weather settings from a single place.

Navigate through orggnomeGWeather in the sidebar. Then, change the temperature-unit and other settings as per your liking.

Using the dconf Editor
