Great job!

Three quick suggestions:

  • Add the required libraries (build-essential kde4-devel libplasma-dev
    ) to your install instructions,

  • add translucency to the widget background

  • and (if possible) some sort of mouse-hover popup with the forecast :)

    How did you install the plasmoid?

    It won't install from the internet for me (kubuntu).

    I was able to download and compile, but if I try to install from file from the add widgets dialog, all of the files are invisible. What file does it need to point to and how can I get the add widgets dialog to see that file?

    Hi

    Did you compile it and then run a

    "make install"

    command from the directory in whic you built?

    If so, it will appear in the widget list next time you restart KDE (for sure... it doesn't appears immediately)

     Proxy support for 0.4

    Hi,

    First, congratulation for your gret work ;)

    I was playing with this plasmoid at work and was enable to get weather result (because of firewall). After watching a little your code, I patch your version to get proxy support.

    So, if anybody is interested in, add '#include <kio/job.h>' in top of plasma-weather.cpp, and replace Plasma_Weather::collectData() method with the following code :

    void Plasma_Weather::collectData()
    {
    //retrive the weather file
    KUrl tmpFile(QDir::homePath() + "/.weather.xml");
    KUrl url("http://weather.yahooapis.com/forecastrss?p=" + zip + (tempType == "C" ? "&u=c" : ""));
    KIO::file_copy(url, tmpFile, -1, KIO::Overwrite | KIO::HideProgressInfo);
    }

    You also need to edit CMakeList.txt and add -lkio in the following line :

    target_link_libraries(plasma_applet_weather ${PLASMA_LIBS} ${KDE4_KDEUI_LIBS} -lkio)

    Have a nice day !

    Yannig

    Thanks for this, it's pretty cool. One issue for the next version: you've misspelled "Fahrenheit" in the configuration dialogue box. :)

     Other hoster

    Could you please use another hoster? There seem to be problems with direct links to the file (such as: http://download83.mediafire.com/t3h2uxsuuydg/zsj2dxxj2sl/plasma-weather-0.4.tar.gz). They seem to change from time to time.

    Using your .4 version, I get:

    The end of a CMakeLists file was reached with an IF statement that was not closed properly.
    Within the directory: /home/david/weather
    The arguments are: QT_QT_LIBRARY
    The end of a CMakeLists file was reached with an IF statement that was not closed properly.
    Within the directory: /home/david/weather

    -- Found Plasma: /usr/local/lib/libplasma.so
    The end of a CMakeLists file was reached with an IF statement that was not closed properly.
    Within the directory: /home/david/weather
    The arguments are: QT_QT_LIBRARY


    I looked through the files and nothing stood out.

    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.
