[SOLVED]Newly added applet to the panel cannot be seen

Postby chdslv on Thu May 24, 2012 11:42 am

Have anyone installed the weather applet to Cinnamon panel?
I did exactly as in http://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/applets/view/17, but I can't see it on the panel or in the add/remove applets window.
A Cinnamon applet based on the Gnome Shell weather extension.
"To install, run the ./install script and restart Cinnamon (alt+F2, r)."
What might have I done wrong?

I just installed the weather applet on Mint 13 today.

To run the script, I did CD to where I extracted the file, and entered this command: ./install.sh

Then I rebooted before I attempted to "add/remove applets." (I had also installed a bunch of other stuff, including a video driver.)

I went to the web page to get my location code, and it is working very nicely.

I have the same problem. The extension is installed successfully but after I select it to add to panel nothing happens. When executing cinnamon-weather-settings I get this
** (cinnamon-weather-settings:2486): WARNING **: The connection is closed. No settings are saved and no weather is shown. Any ideas?

P.S. I solved the problem. You have to run install.sh with the user account.

I got it working. Extracted weather@mockturl was copied to ./local/share/cinnamon/applets and ran ./install.sh in Terminal and the activated it in ADD/Remove applets.

This isn't solved for me so would appreciate some help if anyone can. Mint 13 Cinnamon x64 - followed all the instructions and it appears in my panel. Clicking however either produces either an unrecognisable blob or a perfectly formed mini window, but with nothing in it to click on. Any ideas please?

This is not yet solved. I was able to install runningthe install.sh script within the weather folder within the cinnimon applet forlder - but now when I click on the curved arrow icon that results, I get a perfectly formed mini window, but with nothing in it to click on.

THANKS EVERYONE for helping

Sorry - was able to solve it myself. Needs SUDO to run install - if you do it regular it results in the curved arrow - but if done as an administrator it is successful.

Hope that is of help to those still "stuck"
