Weather Wallpaper Plugin

Weather Wallpaper Plugin
zoom


Depends on  KDE 4.x
Downloads:  5674
Submitted:  Apr 5 2009
Updated:  Apr 7 2009

Description:

A weather-aware wallpaper for KDE's Plasma desktop shell. Once configured, it is aware of the weather at your location, and will change the desktop's wallpaper as the weather changes. It uses the weather dataengine to retrieve the weather.

Bugs:
-Setting a second location will not work unless after you set it, you switch to another wallpaper plugin, hit apply, and switch back again.
-Also, since the NOAA ion doesn't return icon names, this wallpaper plugin will not work with the NOAA weather source. :(

TODO:
- Add an element of time in determining the wallpaper, so that night pics can come at night, etc. (The weather icon we receive can't provide this for most weathers, just for cloudy and clear nights)
- Show basic weather info/location name on top left of screen. For now just use the weather widget of your choice. ;-)
+ Autodetect metric/imperial measurement systems based on locale, or at least let the user choose between the two
- Allow the user to set a custom wallpaper for weather conditions.

This wallpaper is compatible with both KDE 4.2 and KDE 4.3, though users of KDE 4.3 users will want to get the latest version from kdeartwork/weatherwallpapers

Until then, feel free to enjoy the wallpaper plugin. :)

Installation notes:
This plugin does need the wallpapers from kdebase-workspace and kdeartwork.

To build this plugin, you will need the development headers for kdelibs and kdebase-workspace. (kdelibs5-dev and kdebase-workspace-dev on Kubuntu, dunno about other distros)




Changelog:

0.2.1:
------
- Fix a bug where the weather update time configuration wasn't saved
- Update translations for plasma-wallpaper-weather.desktop from trunk. (Added sv translation)
- Use the Air wallpaper if the weather cannot be retrieved (No internet, etc)

0.2:
------
- Initial release.

Nice idea :) But it's unusable for me for now :( At system start I have no internet connection (using wi-fi which connects in 1 minute after start) so I have no wallpaper too. It would be great if it used last used wallpaper if no connection. And it would be great if it had a possibility to try if there is a connection. Without it - i would have to wait 30 minutes for wallpaper change.

Hmm, good point. It'd be nice to have something better than boring blue there.
I'll see what I can do.

That is probably one of the most inovative "nice tool to have" features i've ever. It is astonishing to see that such a small addition like that wallpaper-plugin can improve your overall workflow so heavily.

One thing I would like to have there is the possibility to set custom wallpapers for a certain weather, I have a nice holiday-pic which fits perfectly to pure sunshine. It would be nice if I could use that. So a config option would be nice:)

 More weather-sources?

Just wondering if you have plans to introduce more weather-sources, such as accuweather.com or weather.yahoo.com? As of now, my location is unavailable...

Other than that: very neat!

The wallpaper plugin has available to it all of the weather sources available to the official weather dataengine. The weather sources would have to be added to the KDE weather dataengine before they'd be available for the weather wallpaper or other plasma applets using the dataengine.

Ah, okay. So do you know if there are any more sources in the pipeline for 4.3?

I'll love it when it works with Customizable Weather Plasmoid http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=98925

The weather dataengine just sucks, it doesn't have all the cities in the world. Is better to use the weather webpages, and we can also watch satellite images ;)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
