Hi,

I know that KWeather is part of the KDEToys package, but I was wondering if there was another weather type program that would be small enough to fit into the Puppy "lifestyle", and that could be included as a Pupget package?

Thanks

https://addons.mozilla.org/extensions/moreinfo.php?id=398&application=firefox
although you might need firefox not sure
this is a link for wmweather it should work to
http://www.dockapps.org/file.php/id/17
and this one seems even better wmweather+
http://www.dockapps.org/file.php/id/112
as I began searching for you on this topic I installed wmweather+ and recommend that you get this unless your computer is slower then just get
wmweather but try wmweather+ as it displays what you want

I recently acquired an Oregon Scientific WMR968 and, of course, want to see about getting it to work to the fullest extent under Puppy.

I not only want to run it locally but wish to post the readings online for anyone interested to see.

This app seems pretty robust but requires perl. What are the odds of getting it to run under Puppy, please?

Thanks! doc

wx/net requires Perl 5.002 or higher and Perl/Tk 402.003 or higher
to run. As of release 1.03, it will also work with Tk800 libraries.
Use Tk800.018 or higher for best results.

I tried to search for this info on the Forum but found nothing. Do we have the
necessary Perl, Perl/tk, etc. available for Puppy to run this app?

OK, Search on the Forum didn't help but poking around the dotpups harvested Perl and I loaded it. Then I tried to kick off wxnet ...

# perl install-wxnet.pl
Can't open perl script "install-wxnet.pl": No such file or directory
# cd weather/wxnet-install
# perl install-wxnet.pl

Welcome to the wx/net installation script!

Please enter the paths requested below so that wx/net may be properly installed.

Enter the path to your Perl executable [/usr/bin/perl]:

Enter the path where you wish to install the server-daemon base framework files [/usr/local/lib/sdbase]:

Enter the path where you wish for the wx/net application hierarchy to be install ed [/usr/local/wxnet]:

* Path perl set to /usr/bin/perl
* Path sdbase set to /usr/local/lib/sdbase
* Path wxnet set to /usr/local/wxnet

Are these paths correct? y

Installation of wx/net about to proceed. Hit RETURN to continue or
Ctrl-C now to abort...

=> Creating directories

Directory /usr/local/lib/sdbase already exists, cleaning out...

Directory /usr/local/wxnet already exists, cleaning out...

Creating directory /usr/local/wxnet/bin...

MKDIR
Error creating : No such file or directory

I sam not sure what the problem is since I manually created the sdbase and wxnet folders where desired when I tried this the second time and neither way worked.

Sigh ... what am I not getting now? doc

Yes, my just-prior post noted that I had found and installed it but that I was having trouble now with perl.

Thanks! doc

- Sorry must have missed your last post . . .

try writing a Private Message to John Murga who created the perl version of Puppy - Puppy Opera (go to member list - he is first on the list)

Done. Am looking forward to a better understanding of Perl and Puppy.
Thanks! doc

The weather extension feature of Firefox works with Puppy. If you have installed Firefox, you can go to /tools/extensions on the menu bar and follow the link to the Firefox site. Firefox will install the extension automatically.
