My Weather Indicator - Easily Access Live Weather Information in Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal!

If you want your GNU/Linux operating system to automatically fetch weather related information according to your geographical location then "My Weather Indicator" is a pretty cool app. Although Gnome classic desktop do come with an applet of its own... but with Ubuntu 11.04 there isn't an app, with MWI, you can have a gorgeous looking weather information rich, desktop :P.

Pic is from the developer's web site:

It's basically an applet written in GTK and takes very little of your system resources as well. It displays various information such as...

*. Temperature.

*. Humidity.

*. Wind speed, etc.

If you use Ubuntu 11.04/10.10/10.04, then you can install it by issuing the bellow command.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator
Once you install it for the first time and reboot, you'll be asked to enter the UTM coordinates. Rebooting is not necessary,  so after the installation completes, search for "my-weather-indicator" in Natty's Dash, which should bring its "icon" and simply click on it.

For Ubuntu 10.10 and 10.04 users, you can access it via: Applications -> Accessories - > My Weather Indicator.
