The weather app is not working. Is there an alternative source?

To which weather app are you referring?

There's a weather program that's pre-installed in UberStudent and it works great. It's just a little hidden. ;)

Right-click on your panel somewhere that is blank and then go to Panel > Add New Items. Then, scroll down and add Weather Update. Right-click on it once it is on your panel, choose Move, and then drag and drop the item where you want it to reside on your panel. Once you get it situated, right-click on it and choose "Properties" to tweak the configurations--it usually doesn't guess your location quite right but that's a cinch to change, as you'll see. When searching for your location, don't use abbreviations and your location should turn right up.

After uninstalling the older version of xfce4-weather-plugin (0.8.5, 2014), you could then download the source for the latest version of xfce4-weather-plugin (0.8.9, 2017) from archive.xfce.org/src ; after extracting the contents of that .tar.bz2 archive file, the file named INSTALL contains instructions for installation.

Hello. I found a simpler way to set the new version up. Go here - https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/c ... her-plugin and download and run the .deb file. The app is working now for me.
