Updated Weather Wallpaper

Posted in Linux, ubuntu by microwavebiscuit on September 5, 2007

Weather Wallpaper has been updated to version 0.2.0 and the author has added quite a bit of functionality. There is now a preferences dialog which allows for configuration of imperial/metric units, x and y offsets for the weather info (to reposition it on the screen) along with a host of bug fixes. If you are using it, I’d recommend upgrading. You can get it here: http://mundogeek.net/weather-wallpaper/.

I experienced a small bug and reported it on the launchpad site. Another contributor posted a fix. So, if you upgrade and have any issues, try this:

Change lines 558-566 to:

statusIcon = gtk.StatusIcon()
try:
    # Run the thread which updates the wallpaper
    updater = Updater()
    updater.start()

    # Create the status icon
    statusIcon.set_from_stock(gtk.STOCK_REFRESH)
    menu = gtk.Menu()

Also – notice the cool new wordpress feature for Syntax Highlighting!
