Using Mokometeo

  • In the 0.2 version, there is a bug. To be able to use Mokometeo, please type theses commands before launching it:
mkdir /home/root/.mokometeo
mkdir /home/root/.mokometeo/img
cp /usr/share/mokometeo/question.png /home/root/.mokometeo/img/
  • Just click on the desktop icon Mokometeo.png called "Mokometeo" to load the software.
  • You will see a window appearing, with a 4 days forecast : Today, tomorrow (J+1), the day after (J+2) , etc.
  • You can use the Next and Previous buttons to change the displayed city.
  • If you have no internet connection, you will have to wait a little bit, and then the window will show "question marks" and "-" as min and max temperatures

Paris,http://fr.weather.yahoo.com/FRXX/FRXX0076/index_c.html

German Version:

city,url
Augsburg,http://de.weather.yahoo.com/GMXX/GMXX0004/index_c.html
Muenchen,http://de.weather.yahoo.com/GMXX/GMXX0087/index_c.html
