Weather Theme:


Requires python-elementtree

### READ IF YOU ARE USING PYTHON 2.5 ###

Open FuriusWeather.py with a text editor.
Look for -- from elementtree.ElementTree import parse -- it should be on line 4.
Comment that line out by placing a # at the beginning of the line. Now on the line below type this -
from xml.etree.ElementTree import parse

Thanks to jonwilbanks.

I have tried to keep this theme as simple as possible, with basic coding to allow community customisation and advancement.

Uses the Crystal Icon Theme for Liquid Weather (Author unknown)

Mouse over will reveal forecast summary.

Clicking the Orange Text will open a full forecast.

You need to open the FuriusWeather.py file in your favourite text editor.
You will see the following section near the top of the file:

#***********CHANGE THESE VALUES AS REQUIRED********************

#units = 'c'

locationCode = 'UKXX0318' # London

browser = "kfmclient openProfile webbrowsing "
#browser = "/opt/swiftfox/swiftfox "

#browser = "opera "


#*****************DO NOT CHANGE BELOW ME!***********************

Comment/uncomment to select your desired measurement unit and web browser.
Change the location code to match your desired city.

1. Visit http://weather.yahoo.com/
2. Enter you city in the search box and click 'Go'
3. You will be sent the the weather page for your desired city.

hello,
I'll like to see, use some of integer to monitors temperatures and fans, and add new module:

temp cpu:
sensor=sensor type="temp1" format="%v °C"

hdd temp:
sensor=program program=" hddtemp /dev/sda | grep °C | sed -e 's/.*: //'"

fan:
sensor=sensor type="fan1" format="%v rpm"

Thanks, a lot

i wish the clock was anti-aliased, but i guess replacing the clock with a blank area and putting cairo-clock (for those with composite enabled) instead would do too.

very nice theme though!

Yet another unnecessary monitor app! That makes about 4000 on this website alone.

Looks like some modules have changed positions in Python lately.

Hi Furius.
Thanks a lot for this themes. Great work. Besides feeling lucky with your nice small themes , I've got the following problem: I use Fedora 7 which has elementtree build partly into Python 2.5 (In connection to that , some bugs made their way into F7 final) . For that the weather theme stays empty , all packages which have python in the name are installed on my machine . Maybe you have got an idea for a "nice" workaround? I'd really like to use this theme because liquid weather comes up so big on the screen !

Thanks for your effort. Weather module is working great.

Can we expect the weather module to display the weather in nice little weather icons in future?

I have been using SuperKaramba for sometime now. But this is my first post. This is a great work from you.

Actually I was looking for something which can be used like a Sidebar and I feel this is the one.

I have a suggestion here. But before going into that I must say I have no idea whether or not the suggestions are feasible. These are just my ideas.

a) Will it be possible to change the backgrounds and the text size or font?
b) Similarly can I change the feed source in the RSS module?
c) Is it possible to add a weather module?

I will again say that this is a great work.

Thanks.

Now I have been able to do change the text and font of the RSS feed. I have also changed feed source. I think the background can be changed also similarly. I would like to have something transparent if possible. I should have explored more before asking you. I need your permission to keep the changes with me (this is only for my personal use).

So now we are left with the Weather one. I understand everyone is using LiquidWeather, but if Furius can proide a simple weather report like the cpu or memory module that would be great.

Thanks for you comments, they are much appreciated. If you look at my post 'RSS Feed Reader' (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/RSSNews+-+An+RSS+Feed+Reader?content=51521), this will show you how to configure the RSS module. It also has some transparent backgrounds, which you could resize and use.
I know a lot of people of fond of the Kore style, so I was planning on releasing a Kore version of this theme in the very near future. That will feature transparent backgrounds with a Kore style border.
Concerning the weather module; This is something I will be looking into, it is just a matter of finding the time.

Thanks for your reply and . I am now getting the feeds from the sources of my choices. I have also checked your post in the 'RSS feed reader'. That one is also a great work. It's a complete solution on RSS needs.

I will be eagerly looking forward to the weather module and your planned work as per the Kore style. If you can manage time then I think adding the top-processes module will be a great addition too.

Thanks for your great effort and all the best for future developments.

It seems like the graph shows you using about 95% of your ram. Since you have 2GB, thats probably not the case, rather you are using some < 75% of your ram with the rest being cache. Are you accounting for cache? IMO, the "real" ram usage is more important because it limits what you can do at one time... ideally, the cache is always taking up the extra ram, so it will always be near 100%

I agree, and thank you for pointing this out. I have changed the theme to display, as you put it, 'real' memory usage, that is, cache and buffers excluded.
