What does it do?
This extension is about displaying the current weather conditions, humidity, pressure, and sunrise/sunset time of a selected location, while also providing a forecast for the next two days according to Yahoo Weather. The extension is placed on the top panel and displaying the temperature with the corresponding icon and provides more detailed info in a pop-up when pressed.
How can I install it?
This extension is not yet present in the Gnome Shell extensions website so you’ll need to download the zip file from the project’s git page and compile it. To do this you will have to open a terminal in the folder that was created after unzipping the file that you downloaded and run the following commands:
sudo su -c ‘make install’
After that you can enable the extension from the Gnome Tweak tool. Note that you may have to log out and log in again to see the available option.
How to configure?
Open a terminal and write the following command: gnome-shell-extension-prefs and press enter. This will open the Shell extension preferences tool. You can then choose the Weather Indicator and start configuring it. Everything is clear and easily understandable except maybe the location WOEID that may bother you.
Instead of searching for yahoo’s location woeid that probably won’t work as intended (I don’t know why), you should go ahead and search for your location’s ID code from this website. Copy and paste the alphanumeric code in the extension’s preferences WOEID box and you are done!
