Conkywx TWO Released - Conkywx Conky Weather Script

Conkywx now supports the revised wunderground website.
Now Conkywx is 2.0 - Additions and changes:

NOTE:
  • As many users are using various conky variants - conky is no longer a dependency but however - conky is still required. Please ensure conky - in what ever form - is infact installed. 
  • To reduce duplication of effort - conkywx man page now has basic information and has a link to the wiki which is normally being updated real time as changes to conkywx are being made.
  • If you are using Gnome 3 - own_window_type in the *conkyrc.sh needs to be changed to normal desktop dock etc
  • In some cases to have conky restart automatically you may need to give a sleep 30 - delay in your conky-start script
  • *conkyrc.sh files are configured on XFCE 4.10 with compiz + emerald - you may need to tweak conkyrc examples for your DE

    1. Hey Donald :-)
      The website has done some magic - the data is shown on the page in the forecast widget but does not get downloaded with wget. It is rendered at run time... am trying to find a solution... we just need to hang on...
      cheers

    1. Hey Salan - many thanks for the message - just playing with Inbox (new Gmail) and saw the message - which tells me the new stuff is great ;)

      I have been busy building redundancy into conkywx.

      We should finally have more than 1 site to choose from ...

      There are text templates in wunderground pages which are not activated - but we have many options and sooon :D ...

      cheers
