Forecast missing for Cambridge, UK.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:26 EST
The weather applet tells me that no forecast is available. It lies -- I could
get one from http://www.meto.gov.uk/lib/includes/fsssi/city/cambridge.html
I don't see a way to tell it that though.
Same problem in FC5. Still no way to tell it that I know where the forecast is.
I have tested this on GNOME version 2.14.1 and was able to receive a forecast
for Cambridge. If this problem persists, try to update the applet by right-
clicking on the applet and selecting "Update".
Reassigning to gnome-applets.
I still get "Forecast not currently available for this location."
If I change it to London, I get a forecast. Changing it _back_ to Cambridge then
does give a forecast.
Sorry for the slow turnaround on this one, guys. Is this still an issue?
Still says 'Forecast not currently available for this location', and no way to
tell it to look at
I have no recollection of the events related in comment #4. I don't remember
ever seeing it give a forecast, although current weather has always worked. I
don't see how I would have come to make it up though; I assume it really happened :)
So there are a few problems it looks like:
First, the url changed. gweather applet tries to go to:
for cambridge, but the new url is:
http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/weather/uk/ee/ee_forecast_weather.html (as you point
If I go to the first url in firefox it takes me to the second url.
gnome_vfs_async_open just returns NOT_FOUND, however, for the first url instead
of redirecting. /usr/bin/HEAD doesn't mention any sort of redirect so something
strange is going on, but I haven't looked too deeply.
Aside from that, the actual content of the page has changed as well. It now
Anyway, it would take me quite a bit of time to get this working, unfortunately,
and I don't have that time to invest right now. I was hoping this would just be
a Locations.xml change or some such that I could commit and build in between my
I'll file it upstream for you and maybe someone else will look into it.
Perhaps the BBC version would be better. They seem to be better set up for it,
with RSS feeds etc.
