I'm using My-Weather-Indicator, but it is never accurate! The Wunderground option is disabled and I can't select it! How do I enable it? I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.

here's what that menu looks like. Note the Wunderground.com box is disabled

And what does "Activate" mean?

You need an API key:

Wunderground: http://www.wunderground.com/weather/api/ World Weather Online: http://www.worldweatheronline.com/register.aspx

Then paste in your key and activate.

    I click the activate button, then nothing happened! Commented Aug 5, 2014 at 13:36
  • Presumably you registered with Wunderground, got an API key and pasted it into the indicator dialog BEFORE clicking activate? If so, then check for known bugs and if there are none, log one yourself at the same link. Commented Aug 5, 2014 at 13:42

    Thank you! For those wondering, I requested a free "developer" license (I am a paying wunderground subscriber), and encountered no problem saying that I "my" app was called "My Weather Indictator", and used launchpad.net/my-weather-indicator as the app's website address. They gave me a key immediately and it worked. Thanks!
