Note to self:

Kwiki has a bug in the tabnav theme where the page title doesn't get set properly. To fix, edit theme/tabnav/template/tt2/kwiki_screen.html and change page_id (line 9 or so) to be page_name.

Simples...

Topic: Computers Weather forecast in the Gnome panel
(link)

12:04am, Saturday 1 August 2009

It's annoyed me for some time that the standard Gnome weather applet doesn't display forecasts for the UK (it's a long-standing bug). So I scratched the itch.

Given that I'd be hacking something together in Perl, the Gnome2::PanelApplet module seemed like a good place to start. It didn't take long to get something that mostly worked. But, er, either I'm doing something wrong or there are still some lurking bugs; my applet wouldn't add properly from the Gnome menu, only if I started it from the command line first.

oh look, it's going to rainSo I resorted to gnome-swallow-applet which is a clever (but revolting) hack to "swallow" any X window into the panel, and wrote a script to parse the BBC's weather RSS feeds and display icons for the upcoming days. This is what it looks like. You can download the script; change the feed URL for your location, and enjoy. If you fix any of the bits labelled FIXME please send me a patch!

To anyone I've erroneously rejected email from today - sorry.

It seems that Sanesecurity's Sanesecurity.Jurlbl.5624 virus definition is a little too wide-ranging; I've disabled it.
