  1. I’ve used Conky for ages but still haven’t found a Weather script that works in Australia. Most use US based sites, as you have here, but I’ve found they aren’t very accurate here. They often just use the weather for the nearest capital but if you live outside of Sydney as I do only the BOM gives the correct forecast etc.

    Even so I like your guide, well done.

    BTW there is a Fedora remix that is produced in Australia, Kororaa – https://kororaa.org/ . Comes already set with the locale and language etc set.

  2. Hi
    when test the script ./weather this error occurs:

    • Heya mate…
      Over that last month I noticed that the conky weather scripts started returning errors. This is due to a site redesign from accuweather.com. I will look around for another valid weather script as mine is borked atm too.

      • Did you ever update your script to reflect the weather sites redesign? I would love to use this conky config. thanks for the write up!

  3. hi! Great post and it helped me a lot! Just wondering, would you know how to autostart conky when you login? I’ve looked everywhere and cant seem to find the answer.

    Thanks in advance!

  4. Excellent, and thanks for sharing.
    Question: I’d like to show the frequency that my cpu is running at.
    Anyway to do this?
    Thanks,
    Kerwin
