Weather Screensaver is here for XScreensaver

Today is my request day, though :)

Up to another user request for screensaver, showing the weather forecast for the current city,

I decided to run and that request. So here it’s first appearing!

IMPORTANT: The current weather is set to Burgas, Bulgaria, so if you want to change it

go to http://www.rssweather.com/dir find your city and copy and paste the RSS URL into

/usr/lib/xscreensaver/weather like root!

sudo gedit /usr/lib/xscreensaver/weather and replace the RSS URL with your one!

Grab it while it’s hot

Also by adding my repository: sudo apt-get install weather-gl

 

PS: I’ll be glad if someone tell me how to make the degree sign ° look normal :)

    Thanks for creating the weather screensaver. I’ve tried to follow the instructions, but can’t get the Weather choice to show up under Xubuntu 12.04. I’ve even edited ~.xscreensaver , and it doesn’t seem to work. Do you have any suggestions?
