How to Install Typhoon, the weather widget in Ubuntu and Linux Mint

Hello Linux Geeksters.

Choosing a Weather Indicator for your Ubuntu or Linux Mint Operating Systems is a matter of taste. To my mind, you should choose the one which interface you like the most, because they all do the same work.

In this article I will show you how to install Typhoon, an open-source version of Stormcloud., on Ubuntu 13.04 Raring Ringtail, Ubuntu 12.10 Quantal Quetzal, Ubuntu 12.04 Precise Pangolin, Linux Mint 15 Olivia, Linux Mint 14 Nadia, Linux Mint 13 Maya.

Stormcloud is the most popular and light weather forecast application.

Typhoon is a derivate of Stormcloud, very easy to use. You just have to type your city’s name, to get the weather prognosis.

Installing Typhoon is simple, all you have to do is:

Add the repo:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:apandada1/typhoon

Update the repo index:

$ sudo apt-get update

Install the app:

$ sudo apt-get install typhoon
