Weather Gadget - No Data Error on multiple PC's running LL 2.8


Was working Okay yesterday, but just noticed in the command line that instead of scrolling weather information, the Sun Icon has an "?" on it and the message No Data is written next to it.


Any idea how to fix this?


Thanks,
Dan

Wow, that was quick.  It's now working on all PC's.  Nothing I did to fix it, so I suspect perhaps an issue at the Data Source somewhere in Internetsville...


Close this issue.


Thanks,


Dan

The Xfce-weather applet (for the Xfce panel) was "no data" for a few hours yesterday too, but it's up and running trouble-free now.

Thought it was only me but mine is showing No Data for about a week. Any idea if it will be fixed or how to fix it. Or is there a other weather widget i can use that works?

This has actually happened before with Xfce4's weather gadget.  There's nothing wrong with our computers, the issue is on their end.  Sometimes you can "wait it out" until it's fixed, or you can load up an alternative weather gadget thingy.

Been waiting for a week now, isnt a big deal. In the meantime i try to find out which other weather widgets are good to use for weather forecast here in The Netherlands. And as last resort i can always turn around and watch out the window, the viuw is telling me now that it is raining outside.

Explanation of why this happens. The weather API XFCE uses changes or no longer works.
The XFCE page - http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/panel-plugins/xfce4-weather-plugin

Solution:

- Start a thread informing us of this.
- Once I get a few people reporting the same issue, I'll begin testing.
- If I can duplicate the error, I'll patch and release an updated package.

This is pretty much the same approach I take to all bug reports.
