Hi vovchik,

I modified your Pet so that it would get the weather for my location only, and then installed it. It works fine. So, I did not need to compile the source-code for Wary. Smile

Thanks very much for this great little utility. I really like the fact that I can get my weather information at a quick glance by simply mousing over the icon in the tray instead of having to open the application and/or have it take up a bunch of space on my screen, --but that is a matter of user preference for me.

Monsie

Bump for this excellent little app. Just installed and working perfectly in Precice 5.7.1 retro w/Openbox_LxPanel.

This seems like it should be a standard inclusion in all Puppies - weighs almost nothing (file size and CPU overhead) and takes just the tiniest snippet of bandwidth to download such a useful amount of info... actually more info as offered by Weather Station in Pwidgets, but at a small fraction of the bandwidth.

Great applet!! Smile

Bob

*edit to add screenshot to show dialup data transferred in Pwidget "Download" window - the fatter "blip" being Pwidget's data, the following small "blip" being Yweather's...

I tried the pet in Slacko 5.7 and get this error

# yweather 551801 c
Could not open library libgobject-2.0.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Do I have to install library libgobject-2.0.so? From where?

Thanks

If you, or anyone quite frankly, are running Slacko as a full-blown desktop, keeping the devx loaded is a good idea.

Besides a build environment, it contains numerous libs that, for their size, are omitted in the base iso.

It also contains your missing libs and other items that compromise most distros in the 700mb range.

It's easy to live with Pup "as is" until you want something outside the base, then you need Exclamation libs.

PS - You can dwnld the correct devx from within the menus..
