xfce-weather-plugin cannot update weather data.


Description chris_debian 2009-07-09 18:20:49 CEST
My xfce-weather-plugin has been running perfectly for as long as I can remember.

Yesterday, my icon had the _? No Data_ symbol.  Thinking this was probably a network pI did some troubleshooting.  Unfortunately, my network was fine; I would expect this because I haven't changed any configuration recently.

I changed the location in the plugin, in-case my local weather station was not providing data.  Still the same problem.

When I hover over the plugin, I get the message _Cannot update weather data_.  I have been unable to test this on my other machines, so cannot say whether it is just a x86_64 problem.

I'm sorry I can't offer more information.  

Please let me know if I can help.

Many thanks,

$ curl 'http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/FRXX0099?cc=*&dayf=5&unit=m'
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
 <err type="14">Missing XOAP 'link' parameter in request.</err> 

It looks like weather.com now deny access to clients with no API key, which was the case for our weather plugin until recently. 0.6.3 is the first version where I've added more compliance to their EULA, and 0.6.3 or greater works.

Packagers will have to either update to 0.6.3 or 0.7.0 (I'd suggest
0.7.0) or just get the patch from SVN:

Hi! I also had xfce-weather-plugin perfectly until today.
It neither autodetects my location nor lets me find one but it hangs.
I am exactly under the same conditions as Chris, but with version 0.7.3 from Arch Linux repositories

I ran the same command to see the output:
curl 'http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/SPXX0015?cc=*&dayf=5&unit=m'
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
  <err type="100">Invalid Partner Code.</err>

Any ideas? Thanks in advance
