Weather Wallpaper Plugin

Weather Wallpaper Plugin

Minimum required   KDE 4.x
Downloads:  5919
Submitted:  Apr 5 2009
Updated:  Apr 7 2009


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.

-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. :(

- 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)


- 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)

- Initial release.

How to manualy set a list of wallpapers? Is there a config file or something like that?

Not yet, but I'm aiming to implement this feature for KDE 4.3. (Since the wallpaper plugin is now part of KDE 4.3)

I did the fedora package and can confirm that it doesn't seems to work anymore. However, it did ... even yesterday.

My best guess is currently that there are troubles with the qt 4.5.1 update from yesterday. It introduced plenty of nasty problem and lots plasmoids are not working the way they should. Can you please check, if you already did update the package on your system also?

I'm on Qt 4.5 right now. I can select the city, but the wallpaper didn't appear.

I lefet the "completely blue wallpaper" for a while, and then a Sunny wallpaper started to shine.

It's not exactly my city, but I selected the nearest city in the DataEngine and use the Customizable Weather Plasmoid to show the info from weather.com

Yeah that would be great, there's no data for my city either (Benidorm, in Spain). Weather.com has a huge database.

Development has moved in to the KDE svn repositories, and the wallpaper has become a part of KDE 4.3. I do not plan on making any more KDE-look releases, as I cannot think of anything more to do for the KDE 4.2 version.

 error installing .deb

On Kubuntu 9.04 I can't install the deb package becouse dpkg say me that `/usr/share/wallpapers/At_Night/contents/screenshot.png' is already in "kdewallpapers" package

I got this error too. I tried removing the kdewallpapers package, but that package is actually a dependency for this widget!!

I got around this by using the force-overwrite option in dpkg, like so:

sudo dpkg -i --force-overwrite plasma-wallpaper-weather_0.2.1-0ubuntu1~kdelook1_i386.deb

It's normally not a good idea to use force options when installing packages, but it worked for me this time. YMMV.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
