CWP will no longer get weather data from www.weather.com (F) dates 01/10/2010

I am using Mandriva Linux 2010.0 and CWP-0.9.18 which I downloaded and compiled from source. I did this because I had the same trouble with version 0.9.12 which can be downloaded as a pre-compiled binary for Mandriva from this site.

If you need any additional information, I will check back periodically, or you can email me at the address in my sig. - Feb 07 2010

YAwp is just what I have been looking for. I was able to edit the black skin theme (background image) with Inkscape to make it transparent enough to see my Desktop background image through the widget while still being able to clearly see the weather information.

YAwp provides enough weather information to be truly useful without the clutter and complexity of other weather widgets.

Again, Thank You for YAwp,

Compiling QWeather under Mandriva Linux 2008.1 (Spring) Free edition:

Had to fix the QT4 path:

Used kate's replace function to replace 'share' with 'lib'. I did each replace one at a time, but as it turned out, all instances of the work share were found only in commands pointing to QT4 so replace all could be used safely.

Added a new line to the end of the file window.cpp because gcc-c++ returned a warning "no new line at end of file". - May 07 2008

After fixing a few items so QWeather will compile sucessfuly under Mandriva Linux 2008.1 (notes to follow in another post), I copied QWeather to my ~/bin directory and copied the weather directory to ~ as directed. QWeatehr starts OK, but the dialog requests a "Partner ID" and "License Key". What are these and where do i get them? - May 07 2008
KNetLoad

Network by Flameeyes 31 comments

I used to use kdevmon to monitor Network data transfer load. It provided both an onscreen display in a window and a kicker display in the panel. Both were separately configurable, and the kicker display permitted to show numerical data only. I found this feature to be quite usefull since I use the tiny size setting for the panel.

I like knetload. It works well for me - especially under the 2.6.x kernel. kdevmon returns a segfault and will not load under it. Since it is no longer being developed, and is no longer listed in kde-apps.org it is no longer a viable choice.

If it is possible, please add the option to show numerical data only in the kicker display since that is the only feature from kdevmon I find myself missing :)

Thank you for your hard work and your quality applet. Your efforts are appreciated - Nov 19 2004
