Saját időjárás API kulcs használata My Weather Indicatorban


A My Weather Indicator egy Ubuntu alatt futó időjárás segédalkalmazás, ami felső panelben, vagy akár widget formában jeleníti meg saját körzeted aktuális időjárási adatait. Számtalan hasznos funkciója mellett most egy újabb kiegészítéssel látták el a fejlesztők a programot.

Ha nem az Open Weather Map és a Yahoo weather services szoláltatását használod, akkor észrevehetted, hogy nem mindig működik megfelelően a Wunderground vagy a World Weather Online szolgáltatása. Éppen ezért a My Weather Indicator lehetsőéget biztosít arra, hogy saját API kulcsoddal használd a két szolgálató időjárás előrejelzéseit.
Ehhez nem kell mást tenned, mint az alábbi oldalak valamelyikére regisztrálsz:

A regisztráció végeztével kapsz egy API kulcsot, amelyet bemásolva a megfelelő szolgáltató sorába aktiválhatod saját kulcsodat.

My Weather Indicator telepítése

Jelenleg csak 12.04/12.10 rendszer alatt használható a My Weather Indicator. Ha szeretnéd telepíteni, akkor másold be a lenti parancsokat a terminálba:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:atareao/atareao
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install my-weather-indicator

Software Updater Changes in Ubuntu 13.04

I’m excited about the work and just wanted to highlight it here. See the difference for yourself:

Old ViewNew View

This hasn’t landed yet, but there is enough time before 13.04 that I’m confident it will make it.

A bit about what you’re seeing in that new view:

  • The “Backup” text and icon is being pulled from the .desktop file for the app.
  • “Backup” has subitems because there are some updates that only “Backup” depends on.
  • Updates that are not apps but are part of the base system (i.e. “on the CD but no .desktop file”) are under “Ubuntu base”.
  • For flavors, that should intelligently change to “Xubuntu base” or whatever and use the right metapackage.
  • Notice that the package name is no longer shown, so make sure your package descriptions are high quality!

Ubuntu Phone OS Clock: Clock utility on Ubuntu desktop

Ubuntu Phone Clock is an interesting application that displays a clock inside the already known and appreciated Ubuntu for phones’ home screen-like shape.

Launching the application, exposes a fancy app view, containing a clock and constantly-changing background items.

The “clouds” are constantly rendered with new and new colors, action paired with a moving pointer and new behind-the-clock visual items.

By default, launching Ubuntu Phone Clock positions the time utility on the bottom-right corner.

Closing the application is as clicking on its x button.

While the time app can’t be dragged with the mouse pointer (only), holding the keyboard’s Alt button and dragging the app, allow the user to reposition it on per-user-preference desktop areas.

How do we install Ubuntu Phone Clock 0.1?
Add the following official PPA (Quantal)

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:barbosanascimentogabriel/ubuntu-phone-clock

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-phone-clock

Launch Ubuntu Phone Clock via the Dash by typing Ubuntu phone clock in the search area.

Facebook Not Working With Gwibber

Facebook doesn’t currently work with Gwibber (the Facebook feeds aren’t updated – bug HERE) and this bug affects Ubuntu 12.10, 12.04 and probably older Ubuntu versions as well.

Update: This bug also affected Ubuntu 13.04 (currently under development), but a fix was pushed a few minutes after publishing this post. Hopefully the fix will make it into older Ubuntu versions soon.

There is, however, a work-around which I can confirm it works for Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal and 12.04 Precise Pangolin – so here’s how to apply it and get Facebook to work with Gwibber again!

Mechanig: Handy tweaking utility

Mechanig is a new (work in progress) configuration options manager, designed with Unity in mind, handy tool that centers the Ubuntu desktop’s critical components into an all-in-one to-be-tweaked window.

Mechanig uses a traditional approach, in the sense of utilizing a user-friendly manner of accessing actions: on the top area there is a toolbar (housing all the categories), while on the main view configuration options are exposed; clicking on a toolbar button, visually updates Mechanig’s main view with the clicked category’s related configuration options.

The handy tweaking utility gathers and exposes configuration options from Unity, Window manager, Appearance and Desktop, basically, allowing the user to easily grasp (and modify, apply, manage) the whole of the desktop.

Ubuntu comes with numerous and numerous to-be-tweaked components, behaviors, abilities, etc, approach properly managed by Mechanig via compartmenting its categories (such as Unity) into sub-categories (such as Dash, Panel, etc), thus managing to implement a full set of useful options.

Mechanig has just been released, marking its first release, thus shifting from a concept stage to an actual usable release.

‘Stormcloud’ and ‘Clock’ apps: New Features

The weather app Stormcloud and time app Clock has been updated with a number of small new features.


What’s new?

Everything. Stormcloud underwent a rewrite. It looks and feels pretty similar but it now has support for multiple locations, chameleonic backgrounds (unity only), credits, touch screen support and many more animations.

On the technical side of things, Stormcloud now uses node-webkit rather than GTKWebkit. This is so there are hardware accelerated animations and the smoothest experience possible. The only downside is that it adds a lot to the download size.

The new chameleon background feature matches very closely to that used by Unity:


One removal I’m sad to see go is the Unity Launcher badge displaying the temperature.


Although incapable of displaying metrical units due to a limitation of Unity, it was still a handy feature to have, and one that made keeping the app open, albeit hidden, worthwhile.


There is no longer a dedicated button for switching to the Preferences pane.

Instead it’s located as the very last slide in the carousel; keep hitting the ‘right’ button in the top-right hand corner, or hit your left-arrow navigation key until you get to it.
Choose your temperature and windspeed units; set a custom background, or enable a ‘Chameleonic’ one.

“Small” Cost

The free application is no longer available. 😦

The Stormcloud 1.2 a little expensive: $2.99 (!?) on the Ubuntu Software Center.

The app costs too much than I’d reasonably expect to pay for it, but the developer is hamstrung by Canonical in this regard: $2.99 is the lowest price at which they allow developers to sell their apps.

Stormcloud 1.1 was free. If you want Stormcloud 1.2 for free, you can download it off Github.

Stormcloud on the Ubuntu Software Center



The primary purpose: to tell you the time.

For this the app and its developer, Micheal Harker, get full marks because it automatically detected my timezone and showed me the correct time.

Look & Options

Like the weather app Stormcloud, Clock lets you change the colour of the background.
Sadly ‘Ubuntu Ambience’ isn’t included within the colour options on offer.

Three different clock stlyes can be chosen from: digital, polar, and analogue. 

24 Hour Time and a ‘seconds‘ hand can also be enabled from the Settings area. The former of these is less well though out: it merely adds an ‘AM’ or ‘PM’ suffix to the right-hand side of the clock.

Install ‘Clock’ App for Ubuntu.

Download the ‘Clock’ app for the dev website.

Mundus the home folder cleaner

Mundus is a small utility that can help you keep your /home folder clean. It keeps an internal database of known applications and folders, and automagically detects those apps that where uninstalled but left configuration files. Each supported application is also called a module, and each folder it describes is called a submodule.

How to Stream Videos from a Computer to iOS Devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod) – Ubuntu/Linux Mint

Do you have a lot of video files stored on your computer/laptop that you can’t move and play them in your iPhone, iPad or iPod because your iOS device has run out of storage space? Or if you prefer to watch these videos remotely without copying them to your idevice.

In this tutorial, we will see how to stream videos from a PC running Ubuntu/Linux Mint to an iPad, iPhone or iPod with the help of VLC Streamer (Free Edition) over a local WiFi network. You can follow this tutorial under following Ubuntu/Linux Mint distributions:

  • Ubuntu 13.04/12.10/12.04/11.10 (or older)
  • Linux Mint 14/13/12 (or older)


Unity Previews: Ubuntu 13.04

Unity’s Previews feature has seen a number of refinements over the last week as work on Unity in 13.04 continues.

A slicker animation has been introduced, along with better visual differentiation between the active and inactive preview items.

In Detail

new-unity-animationThe changes aren’t subtle, and anyone familiar with the Previews feature as it works in 12.10 will notice the different.

Most notable thus far is the new ‘drop-down’ animation when opening a preview. Although not quite as ‘interesting’ in action as that used in 12.10, it is faster and cleaner. Preview details themselves now appear within a container to better differentiate the details pane from general icon grid.

Following that thinking, the container also adds a small ‘call out’ item pointing to the icon, file or item being previewed and ‘ghosts’ (turns into darkened silhouettes) the icons of items not being previewed.
