Adding Weather Indicator

Get Weather on the Unity top panel in Ubuntu! Worry not, this tutorial doesn’t assume any term aliases.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:weather-indicator-team/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-weather

If you’d like the indicator to launch upon startup, hit the super key and search for Startup Applications. Click on the icon, click Add, pick an arbitrary name, and enter indicator-weather as the command.

I personally prefer to use Celsius. If you were raised with the Imperial system, then I suggest using the following poem to transition.

30’s hot,
20’s nice,
10’s cold,
0’s ice.

Happy hacking!
