A little project of mine that displays the current Weather conditions as an icon on the desktop. Works for gnome based desktops -- Not sure if it will run on others.

Inspiration: http://www.tuxradar.com/content/code-project-use-weather-wallpapers

Requires: Python and the feedparser module for python.

Download: http://rebol.vlexo.net/Programming/info_icons/weather_icon.tar.gz

I myself question the validity of this project, but wanted to do it anyway Laughing

Sounds like a great idea, but is this different from the one that I have built into my clock on my Ubuntu desktop?

Yeah, I know -- it's only different in appearance. I just wanted to see if I could hack icons and learn some stuff along the way.
