So in fact, what the 0.8.x versions of the weather plugin show as current weather is actually fake, derived from forecast data. In most cases and for many locations however, that data is sufficiently good.
Keep in mind that often values provided by other (even local) providers differ a bit from those at your actual location, some are even more than half an hour old.
Bugs should be reported to the Xfce bug tracking system.
A few icon themes are included in the distribution package.
You can choose them on the appearance tab in the settings dialog.
If you know of more (complete) themes that are not included in this list, please send the developers/maintainers a mail so they can add them.
To add new themes, download them and put them in the proper directory.
It will also try to determine the units used in your country, but you can alter these on the units page. button and searching for the city, country, address, monument etc. Only latitude, longitude and altitude will be used for the data requests, so you can change the location name to something you like.
There is a further tab for appearance settings and one for customizing data visible in the scrollbox.
Please be aware that we offer here with the latest g Desklets version (0.35.4)!
This means that the desklet is at least starting without errors. When put in parentheses () some minor errors occur and/or not all displays in the archive are working, but basically it is working.
On the panel icon, a middle click forces an update, left click brings up a forecast and details page. There are a lot of tooltips describing the options and values available.
NOTE: To save power, the plugin stops animation and deactivates other CPU-consuming settings when your laptop is on battery.
Unfortunately, fixing this would be very tricky and time-consuming, and the current developer doesn't want to spend more time on this.
