Gnome Weather is the default weather application for the Gnome dekstop environment. It displays the current weather conditions, forecasts and even notofies the uses about hazardous weather conditions. Being part of the Gnome 3.10 desktop environment, which is still under development, it has been updated to Gnome Weather 3.10 Beta 2 (Gnome Weather 3.9.91).
In this article I will show you how to install Gnome Weather 3.10 Beta 2 (Gnome Weather 3.9.91) on Ubuntu 13.10 Saucy Salamander. This installation guide also works for Linux Mint 16 Petra, since Linux Mint and Ubuntu are 100 % compatible. Since it is still a Beta release, don’t expect it to be bugless.
All you have to do for a successful installation of Gnome Weather 3.10 Beta 2 on Ubuntu and Linux Mint is add the needed ppa, update the local repository index and install the gnome-weather package, like this:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gnome3-team/gnome3-staging
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install gnome-weather
