With the previous version , the weather would't show. So I fixed it by putting the area code , the partner id and key , directly into the code line with the web adress (to get the weather info) and it worked.
Now ,could you explain how to insert the lines , to the backround?

Hey. :)
For using the lines on the background, just open "Lines.png" with Gimp and put the image in the top left corner of your wallpaper.

Could you send me the script you've edited?
So I can update it for future versions.

Best regards,
Ken.

Also, it would be nice to have the conky aligned to the right, as now it lays under my desktop icons. How do I do this?
Thank you.

Hey. This looks awesome, but, being from Poland, I need to know, how to change the font. How do I do this?
Thank you.

Thanks for your work, very pretty.
US users should note that the weather id is your zipcode.
I've been trying to figure out how to change to fahrenheit from celsius, but I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

"2. Aus den Quellen "conky-all", "conkyemail" und "conkyforecast" installieren."

Welche Quellen?? wo sind die??

Hey Daniel,

ich habe soeben die Anleitung überarbeitet.

Ignoriere Punkt 2 und wende stattdessen dies hier an:
"[...]
2. Terminal öffnen und folgendes eingeben:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:conkyhardcore/ppa
$ sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install conky-all conkyemail conkyforecast
[...]"


Gruß,
Ken

Nice script
I am using only weather part.

Can you tell me how to have info + Next 4 Days forecast in one horizontal line instead of 2 lines?

Thanks

I've done it for you.

http://www.file-upload.net/download-2998769/Conky_Ken---Weather_horizontal.tar.gz.html

Just replace old datas and add "weather2" and "conkyforecast2.template".

That should work.

You have only to adjust the "ygap" in "weather" and "weather2" to place it where you want to have it.

AND:
You have to replace my Weather ID with yours of course. ;)

Have fun!
