Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, Gis Weather is a customizable widget that displays the weather forecast of our chosen places, on the desktop. It shows temperature, wind, humidity for today and the next few days.
The latest version available is Gis Weather 0.6.4, which has been released a while ago, coming with Romanian translation, a new weather service: accuweather.com and accuweather support in many languages. For more information, see the changelog.
In this article I will show you how to install Gis Weather 0.6.4 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Pinguy OS, Elementary OS, LXLE, Peppermint, Linux Lite, Deepin, Debian, Kwheezy, Crunchbang, SparkyLinux and other Ubuntu and Debian derivative systems.
Installing Gis Weather 0.6.4 on Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Debian and derivatives is easy. All you have to do is download the deb package from the project’s sourceforge project and install it via command-line. I prefer gdebi over dpkg due to the fact that it also handles dependencies:
$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget sourceforge.net/projects/gis-weather/files/gis-weather/0.6.4/gis-weather_0.6.4_all.deb
$ sudo gdebi gis-weather_0.6.4_all.deb
Optional, to remove gis-weather do:
$ sudo apt-get remove gis-weather
