Cairo dock weather widget not working

I’m having trouble with getting the weather widget on Cairo to work… am I missing a plugin or something? I get the error ‘Could not retrieve information. Is your connection alive?’ no matter what location I try.

Can someone please help me fix this?

Looks like the weather service the applet was fetching its data from stopped working or changed the API. 15 days ago the problem has been fixed: Weather applet: · Cairo-Dock/cairo-dock-plug-ins@8134bac · GitHub

But they didn’t release a new version yet. If you want to get the fix, install the -git version from the AUR.


I’ve marked the below answer as the solution to your question as it is by far the best answer you’ll get.

However, if you disagree with my choice, please feel free to take any other answer as the solution to your question or even remove the solution altogether: You are in control! (I just want to avoid even more subjective opinions being posted and confusing you even more)

P.S. In the future, please mark a solution like this:
so that the next person that has the exact same problem you just had will benefit from your post as well as your question will now be in the “solved” status.


Thanks a lot :smiley:
