None edit Description Braden McDaniel Even though "Show weather" and "Show temperature" are checked in the preferences, neither of those is displayed in the panel. Version-Release number of selected component if applicable: Comment 2 Braden McDaniel Tray to click on add button. Type inn field Locations name. Then a drop down menu appears. Comment 5 Braden McDaniel If you're suggesting that I should remove and add back a location, that doesn't help.
This works fine when you have learned how to use it. There is no help about location in Location window and not in either in Clock Perferences window. There is no title in Location window additional information to select. Titles Give every window a title with the exception of alerts and toolboxes. For Location in Location window there is no hint off additional information to select. First impression is that the field is pure text field. Location window is for to different things.
To select time zone or time rule and to select weather station. This should possible bee to different windows. In most c 5. What is the purpose to change Latitude or Longitude. Comment 7 Braden McDaniel I know how to add a location. That gets no closer to making the weather information appear in the panel. I am at work and do not have access to fedora. Click on clock applet. On location there is a figure house? Tray to click on the figures in locations, then weather information appers in clock applet.
Comment 9 Braden McDaniel The did in F9. They don't in F In the F10 version of the package checking the aforementioned checkboxes for weather and temperature only adds empty space to the applet's footprint in the panel.
Comment 10 Braden McDaniel A "Set" button appears when moving the pointer over one of the locations listed in the drop-down from the panel applet. Clicking the "Set" button sets a location as the one for which the weather and temperature is displayed in the panel. So apparently this is "working". There's just an excruciating lack of discoverability in the clock applet UI.
See also and http: This report has better information regarding the bug. It would seem the bug is not seeing the "Set" button until you hover the cursor over the configured location. Once the location is "Set" the information correctly appears on the panel.
If that doesn't correct the issue for you, please add anything else to this report. Braden It would seem you've figured out the issue to be due to the invisible "Set" button, making the configuration incomplete, Thanks.
Comment 14 Samuele Farfarini They have the same behaviour. The location are correctly added in both applet, but icon and temperature does not appear on the panel. There are only two small blank zone who can targeted with the mouse to show the option menu, and nothing else. The location is correctly set afaik the "home" image is set to "Deelen" but the weather indication just doesn't show up. Not sure what you exactly mean by hover over the configured location?
I moved the mouse everywhere: I can get the weather to display if I remove the clock, add it back to the panel, and add my city Comment 18 Jon Dufresne I add the applet, select a location, and I see the temp and weather in both applets. After I reboot the information is gone in both the clock and the weather applet. Both of these applets worked as expected Fedora 9. Comment 19 Steevithak I tried switching to several different locations in my area, thinking perhaps one of the locations had died, but none of them work anymore.
Not sure if it's related to this bug or not. Is there any particular information I can provide to help? The about page says Clock 2. Both the weather applet and the clock applet's weather are set to the same location. Comment 21 Jacob Masaki Granted the UI could be better, but that's a different bug If one restarts the clock-applet, either by killing it somehow pkill clock-applet and telling the panel to reload, or by killing the gnome-panel or removing and re-adding it, as was suggested earlier then the clock will show weather information.
A fix would be to change the applet to check if NetworkManager has a connection, and wait until NM does have a connection to connect to a server. Even on Ubuntu, where I had the weather initially displaying, if the network went down, the weather applet would die it would show the icon from before the network went down and I would have to kill it to get new weather information.
I'm not sure how it works, but I believe part of why we have NetworkManager around is so that we can signal applications when we lose and gain a connection, right? Hopefully someone can tell clock-applet this. But, hey, I'm on spring break, so I've got some time, and if nobody else is taking a stab at it, I may as well take a look and see if I can make any sense of the code If I can't, well, then we're back where we started, right?
Comment 22 Steevithak I can confirm this in my case too. The weather applet works fine. Then I switched back to using NetworkManager and started a network connection after the desktop loaded - result was no weather info. So it looks like there's a bug in the applet that causes the weather portion to crash if networking is not running when the applet loads.
Comment 23 Braden McDaniel Persons observing issues related to NetworkManager are encountering a different bug.
Comment 24 Y-H Comment 25 Ionut Radu If I reboot it, I get the temperature. I think the problem is related to the fact that my only internet connection is a HSDPA connection now. When I was using ethernet the problem didn't occur. The clock applet version is 2.
