Gnome Weather can't do metric
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:33 EST
At the moment, the weather in Ottawa on weather.com shows up as 59F.
[msoulier@biryani msoulier]$ units
2084 units, 71 prefixes, 32 nonlinear units
You have: tempF(59)
You want: tempC
Asking the weather applet, it says it's -17C in Ottawa. Just a tad
If however, I switch to Fahrenhiet, it says +59F.
Umm, subtract 32, divide by 1.8. ;-)
(59 - 32) / 1.8
I think there's a small arithmetic error in that applet.
Oh, that's interesting. I just switched it out of metric, and back in,
and now it says +15. Looks like some kind of initialization problem then.
Yeah, I've seen random problems with it too in the past. I suspect
things are a bit better now, though. If you can narrow it down to a
well reproducible scenario in Fedora Core 2 please re-open with the
details. Thanks ...
