Description of problem:
Look in the given URL (gnome bugreport) for more information on this

Is there a chance of getting an updated FC2-package with the patch
from gnome-bug applied?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add gnome-weather-applet to gnome-panel
2.Choose a location, say Europe/Norway/Alesund

Actual Results:  Applet displays a questionmark-icon with temperature,
everything but "Sky" displays fine. (Sky in this case is supposed to
be sunny, as in no clouds at all)

I know debian-experimental has this patch applied, since I used that
before migrating to fc2, and this city had sunny weather-display working.

Expected Results:  Sun-icon (or similar) should be displayed instead
of the questionmark-icon, Sky should be "Sunny" instead of "Invalid".

I have this problem too. Where the sun/cloudy/rain/whatever icon is
supposed to show there's just a white questionmark with a grey

Comment 2 José Cardozo 2004-07-03 12:07:09 UTC
I have the same problem here. The same question icon and the same
"invalid" word.

Comment 4 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-19 09:33:22 UTC
Looks like this fix is in gnome-applets-2.6.2. I'll try and get a FC2
update out with that release soon.

Comment 5 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-22 16:24:21 UTC
Just pushed a testing update which should fix this:


Appreciate if someone could try it out and confirm.

Comment 6 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-27 07:41:02 UTC
Okay, gnome-applets- has been pushed to FC2 updates
