Re: [linux-392] Groundhog Day Weather Application Roundup.

Hello everyone,

I'm relatively new to linux but a good weather application was one of
my first priorities. I run KDE and found kwether to be a bit lacking;
after some searching I discovered Liquidweather++
(http://liquidweat...­) which is a superkaramba theme so your
mileage may vary, but it's properly full featured. For a superkaramba
theme it is easy to configure and you can dress it up however you
like.

Also, xfce has a really nice weather panel app.
